I am thrilled to present the cover for the highly anticipated June 2013 release from Tor Teen, Solstice by PJ Hoover!
|Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles that threaten to destroy the earth. Amid this global heating crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom. Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth. An imaginative melding of mythology and dystopia, Solstice is the first YA novel by talented newcomer P. J. Hoover.|
This sounds like an amazing blend of sci-fi, dystopian and mythology, doesn’t it?? We are so proud that one of our Texas authors has written such an amazing book! You can even add it on Goodreads!
Here’s a little bit about PJ:
P. J. Hoover first fell in love with Greek mythology in sixth grade thanks to the book Mythology by Edith Hamilton. After a fifteen year bout as an electrical engineer designing computer chips for a living, P. J. decided to take her own stab at mythology and started writing books for kids and teens. When not writing, P. J. spends time with her husband and two kids and enjoys practicing kung fu, solving Rubik’s cubes, and watching Star Trek.
It’s a blend of all of my favorite story elements and I am really looking forward to reading it!
PJ is also having a HUGE giveaway on her blog, so check it out!
