A sole survivor, a terrifying conspiracy and a devilishly handsome dream-boy who might just reveal the secrets behind one teenage girl's unusual past—if she'll only betray her longtime love to join him? Um, yes, please: with a plot like that, you can sign us right up for a copy of Aprilynne Pike's deliciously twisty new novel "Earthbound," which hits bookstores this summer. And you can also keep it right here to ooh and ahh with us over the cover, 'cause we've got the EXCLUSIVE scoop on just how pretty this book will look on your bedside table come July.
The story: Tavia, the "Earthbound" heroine, is the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed her parents and left her in the keeping of an aunt and uncle. She's safe, she's happy, she should be able to move on with her life. But she can't shake the feeling that something's not right—not when she keeps having visions of a beautiful, alluring stranger who wants her to leave her family and flee to Maine, and not when it starts to look like the accident that orphaned her was part of a plot to end her life. Soon, she's on the run with no one to trust...except the boy who has been by her side every step of the way, and whose heart she'd have to break to learn the truth about who she is. (And if that split-image cover with its mysterious, floating bubble boys doesn't perfectly convey the emotional trauma of love triangles, we don't know what does.)
Check out the full cover after the jump!
