The Way We Fall: cover, jacket copy, excerpt, soundtrack

I have a whole bunch of The Way We Fall goodness to share with you today!

First, the cover. This has already been floating around the web, but that jpg isn't the best quality. So here it is in its shiny not-so-pixelated glory! (click for larger)



Second, jacket copy! The book description that's also been floating around is the shorter catalog copy. The full text that will be on the book jacket is below:

It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you're dead.


When sixteen-year-old Kaelyn lets her best friend leave for school without saying goodbye, she never dreams that she might not see him again. But then a strange virus begins to sweep through her small island community, infecting young and old alike. As the dead pile up, the government quarantines the island: no one can leave, and no one can come back.

Those still healthy must fight for the island’s dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.

Because how will she go on if there isn't?

Poignant and dizzying, The Way We Fall is the heart-wrenching story of one girl's bravery and unbeatable spirit as she challenges not just her fears, but her sense of what makes life worth living.


What to read more? The The Way We Fall section of my website is now online, including an excerpt from the beginning of the novel.

You can also listen to the unofficial soundtrack for the book there.

More content to come soon!

And for one final bit of news: The Way We Fall has sold to Egmont in Hungary. That makes 10 foreign rights sales so far! See the website for a full list.

Thank you! I didn't get any for my first book until a year after it was out, so I'm so excited about this! :)

At some point, I think there is momentum that keeps building. I'd say you've reached that point.

Yay! Congrats on Hungary!

This sounds SO GOOD and scary. I can't wait to read it! But NetGalley turned me down, so I will have to wait! But then I will be SO excited to buy it!
