COVER REVEAL + #GIVEAWAY⁠⠀ . . .⁠⠀ I’m here today to reveal the GORGEOUS cover of @tomryanauthor’s I Hope You’re Listening, his latest YA thriller out October 6th and available for preorder now. This book has all of the elements to draw me in – a old mystery reopened with a new trauma, a young woman and her community broken by a tragedy, and a podcast to solve it all. Check out all the details below, head over to #bookcrushin .com for a GIVEAWAY, and preorder now!⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ This cover was designed by @apheemesser at @albertwhitman and it smashed all my expectations! ⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ In her small town, seventeen-year-old Delia “Dee” Skinner is known as the girl who wasn’t taken. Ten years ago she witnessed the abduction of her best friend, Sibby. And though she told the police everything she remembered, it wasn’t enough. Sibby was never seen again.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ At night, Dee deals with her guilt by becoming someone else: the Seeker, the voice behind the popular true crime podcast Radio Silent, which features missing persons cases and works with online sleuths to solve them. Nobody knows Dee’s the Seeker, and she plans to keep it that way.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ When another little girl in town goes missing, and the case is linked to Sibby’s disappearance, Dee has a chance to get answers with the help of her virtual detectives and the intriguing new girl at school. But how much of her own story is she willing to reveal in order to uncover the truth?⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #coverreveal #ihopeyourelistening #yathriller #albertwhitman #yabookstagram #ireadya #booknerd #booknerdigans #bookish #bookstagram #booktography #bookphotography #bibliophile #bookworm #booklover #igreads #instaread #bookaholic #bookaddict #igreader #readersofinstagram #becauseofreading #bookstagram
