Check out Harper’s Fall 2017 YA book covers!
Epic Reads has released the full list of HarperCollins’ Fall 2017 YA book covers, and they do not disappoint. From contemporary to fantasy, there is a book for everyone on this list. Some of the covers on this list have already been posted here on The Fandom, Adam Silvera’s They Both Die at the End, Lauren Oliver’s Ringer, and Kendra Blake’s One Dark Throne, but there are many more that we’ll highlight now.
RELEASE by Patrick Ness
About the book:
A raw, darkly funny, and deeply affecting story from New York Times bestselling novelist Patrick Ness about the courage it takes to live your truth—and what happens when the walls we build start coming down
Adam Thorn doesn’t know it yet, but today will change his life.
Between his religious family, a deeply unpleasant ultimatum from his boss, and his own unrequited love for his sort-of ex, Enzo, it seems as though Adam’s life is falling apart. At least he has two people to keep him sane: his new boyfriend (he does love Linus, doesn’t he?), and his best friend, Angela.
But all day long, old memories and new heartaches come crashing together, throwing Adam’s life into chaos. The bindings of his world are coming untied one by one; yet in spite of everything he has to let go, he may also find freedom in the release.
This incredible story, in part an homage to Judy Blume’s revolutionary novel Forever, takes its place as a new classic about the intensity of teenage relationships and all the strength it takes to find yourself.
Release hits shelves on September 19, 2017.
MADNESS by Zach Brewer
About the book:
In his most honest and gripping young adult novel yet, New York Times bestselling author Zac Brewer tells the story of a girl named Brooke, who survived a suicide attempt and wants to try again—until a relationship with a boy who’s going through some of the same struggles turns her world upside down.
Brooke Danvers is pretending to be fine. After six weeks of in-patient therapy, she’s gotten so good at pretending that they’re sending her home. Now she just has to fake it long enough for her parents and teachers to let their guard down. This time, when she is ready to end her life, there won’t be anyone around to stop her.
Then Brooke meets Derek. Unlike her family, her therapist, or even her best friend, Derek really gets what Brooke is going through, because he’s going through it too. As they start spending more time together, Brooke suddenly finds herself having something to look forward to every day. More than that—she might even be happy.
But when Derek’s feelings for her intensify, Brooke is forced to accept that the same relationship that is bringing out the best in her might be bringing out the worst in Derek—and that Derek at his worst could be capable of real darkness.
Madness hits shelves on September 19, 2017.
BEFORE SHE IGNITES by Jodi Meadows
About the book:
In Before She Ignites, an elite girl is stripped of her political title and imprisoned—with a dangerous secret that might be her only hope of escape.
Mira is the Hopebearer—a symbol of hope in the chain of seven islands called the Fallen Isles. That is, until she is betrayed by the people closest to her and sentenced to the deadliest prison.
There Mira will need to learn how to survive on her own for the first time and unearth the dark truths about the Fallen Isles—and herself. But Mira isn’t the pawn people believe her to be. She has always been far too interested in dragons for a girl of her station and has an explosive secret that she would die to protect.
And that’s before she ignites.
Before She Ignites hits shelves on September 26, 2017.
