We’re always amazed by our talented art department and the BEAUTIFUL covers they keep producing and we love sharing them with all of you! It’s been a particularly exciting time for cover reveals these last few weeks—American Panda by Gloria Chao, Empress by S. J. Kincaid, Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett, not to mention our week of Spring 18 reveals at the beginning of the month!
Well, we’ve got another one to close out the week with and it’s another Spring 2018 release that we’re super excited for: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone from author Rachel Lynn Solomon (out January 2, 2018). The lovely people over at YA Book Central just revealed it yesterday (and they’re running a giveaway where you can win an advance copy of You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone and some sweet prizes, enter here!) but here it is just in case you missed it, plus we’ve got an exclusive look at the full jacket! It certainly makes for a pretty package, and there’s a nice empty space on the back cover just waiting to be filled with fantastic reviews and blurbs from gushing authors!
You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone is a debut novel about twins who navigate first love, their Jewish identity, and opposite results from a genetic test that determines their fate—whether they inherited their mother’s Huntington’s disease. Tackling important and trending topics in the YA community like illness, death, family, ambition, and sexuality, we’re confident this is a book people will be talking about and we can’t for it to be out in the world!

You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone
by Rachel Lynn Solomon
About the Book:
Eighteen-year-old twins Adina and Tovah have little in common besides their ambitious nature. Viola prodigy Adina yearns to become a soloist—and to convince her music teacher he wants her the way she wants him. Overachiever Tovah awaits her acceptance to Johns Hopkins, the first step on her path toward med school and a career as a surgeon.
But one thing could wreck their carefully planned futures: a genetic test for Huntington’s, a rare degenerative disease that slowly steals control of the body and mind. It’s turned their Israeli mother into a near stranger and fractured the sisters’ own bond in ways they’ll never admit. While Tovah finds comfort in their Jewish religion, Adina rebels against its rules.
When the results come in, one twin tests negative for Huntington’s, and the other tests positive.
These opposite outcomes push them farther apart as they wrestle with guilt, betrayal, and the unexpected thrill of first love. How can they repair their relationship, and is it even worth saving?
From debut author Rachel Lynn Solomon comes a luminous, heartbreaking tale of life, death, and the fragile bond between sisters.
