RENEGADE Cover Love!

Earlier this week, my amazing critique partner and one of my best friend, J.A. Souders finally got to share her cover with the world!  Her book, RENEGADE doesn't come out with Tor until later this year, so the cover and the synopsis will just have to hold you over until then.

Don't worry though, it'll be totally worth the wait.  I've already read the next book in the series (Ha ha! You're green with envy, aren't you?), and I can tell you guys you are definitely going to want to get your hands on this book.

So, without further ado, I bring you, the gorgeous cover for RENEGADE!

And here's the rest of the info:

Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes, all her life she's believed that everything is perfect. Her world. Her people. The law. 

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into Elysium's secluded little world, Evelyn comes to a startling realization: Everything she knows is a lie.

Her memories have been altered.

Her mind and body aren't under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb...and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.

And here's Jessie!
Isn't she cute?
J.A. Souders was born in the heartland with an overactive imagination and an over abundance of curiosity that was always getting her into trouble. She first began writing at the age of 13, when she moved to Florida and not only befriended the monsters under the bed, but created worlds for them to play together.

Because she never grew up, she decided she’d put her imaginary friends to work and started writing. She still lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees with her husband and their two children and is an active member of the RWA, YARWA, SFWA, and SCBWI.

She is represented by Natalie Lakosil of the Bradford Literary Agency. Her debut book, RENEGADE, surfaces Fall 2012 from Tor Teen.

Stalk her all over the place if you want the skinny on pre-ordering, ARC giveaways, and generalized fun!
