Today we have the exclusive cover reveal for Kevin Emerson’s newest book, Exile, coming from Katherine Tegan Books (HarperCollins) April 2014! Check out the cover and enter for a chance to win an ARC!

Catherine Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional—she’s a student at the PopArts Academy at Mount Hope High, where rock legends Allegiance to North got their start. Summer knows that falling for the lead singer of her latest band is the least professional thing a manager can do. But Caleb Daniels isn’t an ordinary band boy—he’s a hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. And he can do that thing. That thing when someone sings a song and it inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will.

Summer also finds herself at the center of a mystery she never saw coming. When Caleb reveals a secret about his long-lost father, one band’s past becomes another’s present, and Summer finds it harder and harder to be both band manager and girlfriend. She knows what the well-mannered Catherine side of her would do, but she also knows what her heart is telling her. Maybe it’s time to accept who she really is, even if it means becoming an exile herself. . . .

On sale in April 2014, Kevin Emerson’s EXILE is a witty and passionate ode to love, rock and roll, and the freedom that comes in the moment when somebody believes in you, even if you’re not quite ready to believe in yourself.

I don’t know about you guys, but that blurb makes me go:

  8. Tammy

    I love when books are yellow because then they are easy to find at the bookstore.

  9. Grace Radford/Anna Pett

    I really like the cover. It’s different from all of Kevin’s other covers and it’s also different from most of the covers out there on the shelf right now, which is a really good thing.

  10. I love the cover of this book! So cute :)

  11. I like this cover a lot! It’s simple yet not, and it suggests that there’s a fun, witty story inside. And I love the synopsis; I want to read more books with guys in bands! Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. I love the cover! The color is awesome. :D

  13. This sounds superb — I’m loving contemporary fiction these days, and especially Kevin’s rock ‘n’ roll twist.

  14. April Yedinak

    I like the cover. It is clean and colorful and doesn’t scream girly.

  15. I LOVE that it doesn’t have some cheesy rocker guy on it with a chick draped all over him. Super cute and simple!

  20. Alexis Salcido

    I love the cover! Very adorable!

  21. Chenise J.

    I love simple covers! The bright yellow is great and everything that’s on it is so completely relevant!

  22. I find the cover extremely adorable, but it’s very bright, which I don’t like as much. It has a simplicity which manages to convey what the book is about, but not so much to make it boring.

  23. Kierra

    I’m not usually a big fan of yellow myself, but I’m loving the purple-yellow mix! Also the silhouette of a guy in the X is so small, but it makes it 3x better for me. Not too girly, not too guy-y: neutral ;)

    I’m really interested about this book, especially since it’s written by a guy! A guy who wrote a contemporary! I’m just so amazed.

  24. Ezequiel

    Its bright colors and its use of headphone cords is really cool and really draws a person in. Love it!

  25. Rachel

    The cover looks amazing. Hope I can have it!!!

    I really like the cover. The yellow and purple make it really stand out. It also gives a good first impression of what the book is about.

  36. I love how it simple yet effective. I love how it’s clean and pleasing to the eye. I love how it ties in music, bands, singer by that one piece of equipment. It’s perfect!

  37. Oh my gosh the cover is so pretty! I love it. It’s one that would catch my eye in a bookstore.

  38. I’m really intrigued by the silhouette in the X. I know some of my teens would love to get their hands on this! After I read it, of course.

  39. Stephanie

    I love the bright colors (:

  40. The cover is so pretty with a nice choice of color. Although it isn’t filled with so much designs, the words written catches the attention of people. It’s simply awesome. ;)

    Simple but eye-catchingly effective. Love that it makes me think both of unplugged and amplified performances, turning it all the way up to 11, and the electric charge you feel when falling in love.

  45. UH…freaking awesome cover of course! Music themes FTW :)

  46. Tammy Dalley
