YA Cover Reveal - Heart Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne

We are so proud to show off our friend Tanya Byrne's YA cover of her exceptional debut: Heart Shaped Bruise.

First, we look at the hard back cover we all know and love:

Isn't it lovely?

But now, feast your greedy little eyes on this pretty.  See the heart? See the two girls'* faces? You can't unsee it, right?

My review will go live for this next week but here's a spoiler: it is frigging amazing!

The paperback is aimed at the YA market although I know a lot of teens have already bought the hardback.  It's due for release in the last week of September and I know - and this is to Hannah, specifically - that I'll be buying another copy.  Because that's just the kind of nerdy book geek that I am.

*PS: now there's a debate - who do you see when you look at the cover? A boy and a girl...or two girls? Leave the comment below - this is getting interesting or follow us on Twitter! @tanyabyrne and @LizUK

I keep coming back to look at it, not to decide whether it's boy/girl or girl/girl, just because it's so stunning!

It is a beautiful cover, so different!

Wow, I've seen this book before but had never noticed the faces. You're right, I shan't be able to unsee them now. (Can't work out if they're male or female or one of each.)
