Cover Reveal: Underwater by Marisa Reichardt

Hi everyone! Today I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to share with you the exclusive cover reveal for Marisa Reichardt’s 2016 debut novel, Underwater! Set to be published on January 12th, 2016, Underwater follows the life of seventeen-year-old Morgan who is suffering from agoraphobia in the wake of a horrific school shooting. I was taken with Underwater from the instant I first read the synopsis a number of months ago, and I’m honoured that Marisa has entrusted me with such a significant moment in her debut publishing experience. This cover was designed by the phenomenally talented Andrew Arnold, whose artistry could previously be seen on the equally lovely cover of Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaira. Scroll down to see Underwater‘s cover and don’t forget to add it to your Goodreads shelves – This is one 2016 release that you will not want to miss!
