Today, I am honored to help reveal the cover of L.K. Madigan’s posthumous YA novel, Project Boy Next Door. Lisa was a personal friend, and just a really wonderful lady. I am thankful to have known her at all, as much as I lament not getting to spend enough time with her.

Lisa’s first two novels are both among my all-time favorites: Flash Burnout and The Mermaid’s Mirror. Sadly, Lisa passed away in 2011 from cancer — but her husband Neil teamed up with editor Rhonda Helms to publish Lisa’s third novel, Project Boy Next Door. Today, I am thrilled to help them reveal the cover & official synopsis:

project boy next doorBeing the son of a mega-famous mogul isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, which is why super-smart but socially awkward teen Melvin Pepper wants to try something new: anonymity. To attend a regular high school, get a normal job, meet real people. A break from the pressure and facade that come with crazy wealth and a world-renowned last name.

But Mel quickly realizes that being Mike, his alter ego, isn’t as easy as he’d assumed. He gradually makes friends at work and school and becomes involved in the radio club, plus navigates the rocky waters of first crushes and first kisses. However, he discovers someone out there is on to his secret and is threatening to expose it.

And that’s not all. One of Mel’s new work friends is hiding a dark secret of her own, and Mel feels helpless to make things better for her. He struggles with juggling two very different identities, balancing jealous old friends and nosy new ones. Yup, Mel’s in way over his head…and the only chance he has to make everything right is to be true to himself.

Be sure to add the book on Goodreads, and look for Project Boy Next Door on sale in early May through Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
