Today, I am so excited to be helping reveal the cover for The Sound of Letting Go by Stasia Ward Kehoe. I am honored to call Stasia a friend, but I’m also a huge fan of her first novel, Audition –which is a sexy novel-in-verse about a teen ballerina. So you can imagine I’m pretty stoked for her next book. Here’s the cover & what it’s all about:
For sixteen years, Daisy has been good. A good daughter, helping out with her autistic younger brother uncomplainingly. A good friend, even when her best friend makes her feel like a third wheel. When her parents announce they’re sending her brother to an institution—without consulting her—Daisy’s furious, and decides the best way to be a good sister is to start being bad. She quits jazz band and orchestra, slacks in school, and falls for bad-boy Dave.
But one person won’t let Daisy forget who she used to be: Irish exchange student and brilliant musician Cal. Does she want the bad boy or the prodigy? Should she side with her parents or protect her brother? How do you know when to hold on and when—and how—to let go?
The Sound of Letting Go comes out February 1st (just about a week after my wedding — so I hope my fiance will forgive me if I spend part of our honeymoon curled up with this little book). Be sure to connect with Stasia online to stay up-to-date on its road to publication:
