The paperback edition of THE FIELD GUIDE TO THE NORTH AMERICAN TEENAGER will feature a brand new cover. Look how purty.
I love the original yellow hardcover but I can’t say I’m not also obsessed with this one.
Until now, this could only exist as a color printout, thumbtacked over my desk but my first novel officially has a cover, folks! This is the real deal, coming out at Balzer + Bray / Harpercollins on January 22, 2019.
The more I look at this image, the more in love I fall with the design. It captures all those high school notebooks that would start out clean in September — color-coded with perfect handwriting — only to end up scribbled into oblivion by the end of the school year. All my thanks to the designer Michelle Cunningham and the amazeballs artist Christina Allen.
