They look so new and shiny!
The cover was designed by Christopher Bauer and the photograph was done by Dan Brandenburg. I am so pleased the cover shows a young black man–so many YA book covers are “whitewashed.”
The official release date is February 26, 2013 and a release party is being planned in DC on the date of March 3.
