Over the course of Pop! Goes The Reader’s two year history, I’ve been fortunate enough to have been afforded a great number of wonderful opportunities, all of which I’m extremely grateful for. I’ve welcomed authors whose work I greatly admire and respect for guest posts and interviews. I’ve received countless advance editions of novels I’ve been dying to read. And, most importantly, I’ve been able to share this space with some of my dearest friends. Today is one such instance. Kathryn Ormsbee is someone I’m proud to call a friend, a woman I adore and admire in equal measure. So, when Kathryn asked if I would be willing to host the exclusive cover reveal for her forthcoming 2016 YA debut, Lucky Few, to say that I was over the moon with excitement would be an understatement. This feeling was only further compounded when I saw the book’s cover for the first time and promptly fell in love. Please read on to admire Lucky Few‘s most beautimous design for yourself and for a wonderful opportunity to win an ARC of the novel, once available!
About Kathryn Ormsbee
Kathryn Ormsbee currently lives in Lexington, KY. She lived in lots of equally fascinating cities before then, from Austin to Birmingham to London to Seville. She grew up with a spaceship in her basement and went on many pretend (?) expeditions to the moon. In days gone by, she taught English as a Foreign Language, interned with a film society, and did a lot of irresponsible road tripping. Nowadays, she teaches piano and writes stories.

Stevie Hart is homeschooled, but don’t hold that against her. Sure, she and her best (okay, only) friend, Sanger, will never be prom queens, but that’s just because the Central Austin Homeschool Cooperative doesn’t believe in proms. Or dancing. Still, Stevie and Sanger know how to create their own brand of fun.
Enter Max Garza, the new boy next door. After a near-fatal accident, Max is determined to defy mortality with a checklist: 23 Ways to Fake My Death Without Dying. Dead set on carrying out fabricated demises ranging from impalement to spontaneous combustion, Max charms Stevie and Sanger into helping him with this two-month macabre mission. But as Stevie finds herself falling for Max, it becomes increasingly difficult to draw a line between his make-believe deaths and her real life. In this offbeat, hilarious, and charming novel, Kathryn Ormsbee introduces three unforgettable teens learning to live each day like it’s their fake-last.
