It's time for another cover reveal! TRANSPARENT by Natalie Whipple.
Isn't it amazing!? The thirteeners think so too. The colors, the setting, the tagline, the invisible GIRL! This is seriously an awesome cover. HarperTeen did a great job. I mean, with the premise of an invisible girl, we had no idea how they were going to pull it off, but they did in a big way! Congratulations on a perfect cover, Natalie! And I can tell you that the story behind the cover is every bit as amazing! I love this book. Adore it. Here's the official summary in case you don't know what it's about:
Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.
An invisible girl is a priceless weapon. Fiona's own father has been forcing her to do his dirty work for years—everything from spying on people to stealing cars to breaking into bank vaults.
After sixteen years, Fiona's had enough. She and her mother flee to a small town, and for the first time in her life, Fiona feels like a normal life is within reach. But Fiona's father isn't giving up that easily.
Of course, he should know better than anyone: never underestimate an invisible girl.
So yeah, that! And in case you don't believe me, how about a blurb:
“Debut author Natalie Whipple deftly explores painfully real teen experience through delightfully unreal stories. Transparent is a smart, funny, tense gem of a book, and Fiona claims a spot as one of my favorite heroines.” Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of the Paranormalcy trilogy
And Natalie's pretty amazing herself.
She's a YA writer and self proclaimed card-carrying nerd. Her favorite areas of the nerd realm include anime, Korean dramas, good cheese, and playing mmorpgs with her family. She takes pride in writing the weirdest books she can think of.
And I'd like to add a bit to her bio: She's an amazing cook, an awesome mother, and a great friend. I've known Natalie for several years now and always love to brag about how I get to beta for her. I've read several of her books and I can say that she's one of my very favorite authors and people. Congrats again, Natalie! I, and the rest of the thirteeners, are so excited for this book!
