Cover Reveal & ARC Giveaway: Silent Alarm by Jennifer Banash

Hello everyone!
I am so excited to say I've been asked by Penguin/G.P. Putnam's Sons to share with my readers today the cover reveal for Author Jennifer Banash's NEW and Upcoming novel, SILENT ALARM! I am a huge fan of the author, her book White Lines was a spectacular read. Along with the cover reveal the amazing people are Penguin have offered to give away a print ARC of Silent Alarm to one of my lucky readers. How cool it that? So without further ado... 





PRESENTING....
SILENT ALARM!


Life changes in a second. 
It was just another Tuesday afternoon for Alys Aronson, worried about her upcoming violin audition, wishing for her boyfriend’s arms wrapped around her. Instead, she was hunched over her history notes in the school library, where she couldn’t have known what was in store—that her brother was headed to that same library with a rifle in his hand. Though she’ll never know why, he spares her, but kills fifteen others that day, only ending the bloodshed by turning the gun on himself.

In an instant, her high school becomes one of those places you hear about on the news, and her brother, Luke, is branded a monster. In the aftermath of the shooting, Alys and her parents struggle to make sense of what’s happened and find a way to stay together. All along the way, trying to answer that unbearable question: Why?

Exquisitely written with a powerfully evocative voice, Jennifer Banash’s Silent Alarm is raw, heartbreaking, and ultimately beautiful.

What does everyone think of the new cover?
