Cover Reveal: Bright Star by N. Anderson

Today I have the pleasure of sharing the cover of a book I read and thoroughly enjoyed, BRIGHT STAR.



Synopsis:

It's bad enough that Sadira Pascal's father doesn't make it home to celebrate her fifteenth birthday. He might be a busy hovership engineer pulling overtime on a new design, but he's always been home for the important things. It's worse when she discovers her father decided to ride on the maiden voyage of his newest ship, the CAS Bright Star, without even telling her. But things really fall apart during Sadira's field trip with her class to observe the hovership launch. Instead of a successful flight, she watches the Bright Star fall out of the sky. 

The Central government confirms her father's death, leaving Sadira to pick up the pieces of her former life. While she struggles with her loss, Private Baruj Haddad tries to convince her that her father and the rest of the Bright Star crew are still alive. At first, Sadira doesn't believe there's any hope. But then she stumbles across a message that makes her think maybe, just maybe, her father is still alive. As she digs deeper into the Bright Star's crash, Sadira uncovers secrets about her father's work, secrets that put her and everyone she loves in danger.

Bright Star releases November 21.

  9. Dang. I like some good thriller/sci-fi. Hard to find in the YA market sometimes. Love the blurb, and the cover has some interesting design themes--sort of a persian arch there with arabic-looking text? Curious how this texture will play out in the novel. Looking forward to it.

  10. Love it! I actually had my farewell to my dad at a viewing, but had I not, I'm the type of person who would believe someone could possibly still live even when you know they've passed. Hope is a really strong emotion.
