Ever since I finished When You Were Mine, I've been DYING for Rebecca Serle to publish another novel. So you can imagine my level of spazz out when, during our BEA slumber party, she told me that she's got a new book coming out! FINALLY! THE WAIT IS OVER! I can't wait to read it... on March 18th, 2014? What? Dammit!
Fortunately, her publisher provided a little something to tide us over-- a synopsis of the book, and the glorious cover!
I'd like to take a moment to point out a few important details of this cover:
1. There are no big faces.
2. There are no headless girls.
3. There is no PDA.
These three facts alone make this cover the equivalent of Fine Art on YA shelves. But even more, the color scheme is FANTASTIC. And those red shoes! I COVET THEM. I don't say this often-- in fact, I'm not sure when I've ever said it-- but seriously, Simon & Schuster, well done.
Now that we've sufficiently appreciated the cover art, here's the synposis for The Edge of Falling:
What if you saved someone’s life…and it changed yours forever?
Caggie never wanted to be a hero, but some things are decided for us. Growing up among Manhattan’s social elite, Caggie always had everything a girl could want, including a storied last name. But after saving a girl from the brink of suicide, Caggie becomes famous, and now all she wants is to be left alone.
After all, she’s still reeling from the death of her younger sister last January, the subsequent destruction of her relationship with high school boyfriend Trevor, and the way in which her family has since fallen apart.
So when mysterious Astor appears on the Upper East Side, he just might be the rescue she needs. But what is he hiding? As life as she knew it begins to unravel, Caggie realizes Astor’s past may be as dark as her own. And in a world in which she’s been branded a hero, Caggie will soon discover that no one can save you…not until you save yourself.
Um, I thought the synopsis would ease the wait, but instead, I'm pretty sure it already gave me TEABS. March 2014, GET OVER HERE NOW.
(Hopefully, Rebecca will keep giving us tidbits until then. You can follow her on Twitter @RebeccaASerle.)
