Cover Reveal: THE TROUBLE WITH DESTINY by Lauren Morrill

If you know me, and my blog, then you know I adore contemporary YA fiction.  So when I was approached to feature the cover reveal for author Lauren Morrill's next YA, of course I was ecstatic!  If you aren't familiar with this wonderful author, be sure to check out her previous novels: Meant to Be and Being Sloane Jacobs.  Now check out the cover for THE TROUBLE WITH DESTINY, publication 2015.

About the book: It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. . . .

With her trusty baton and six insanely organized clipboards, drum major Liza Sanders is about to take Destiny by storm—the boat, that is. When Liza discovered that her beloved band was losing funding, she found Destiny, a luxury cruise ship complete with pools, midnight chocolate buffets, and a $25,000 spring break talent show prize.

Liza can’t imagine senior year without the band, and nothing will distract her from achieving victory. She’s therefore not interested when her old camp crush, Lenny, shows up on board, looking shockingly hipster-hot. And she’s especially not interested in Russ, the probably-as-dumb-as-he-is-cute prankster jock whose ex, Demi, happens be Liza’s ex–best friend and leader of the Athenas, a show choir that’s the band’s greatest competition.

But it’s not going to be smooth sailing. After the Destiny breaks down, all of Liza’s best-laid plans start to go awry. Liza likes to think of herself as an expert at almost everything, but when it comes to love, she’s about to find herself lost at sea.

About the author: Lauren Morrill grew up in Maryville, Tennessee, where she was a short-term Girl Scout, a (not so) proud member of the marching band, and a trouble-making editor for the school newspaper. She graduated from Indiana University with a major in history and a minor in rock & roll, and now lives in Macon, Georgia with her husband and their dog, Lucy. When she’s not writing, she spends a lot of hours on the track getting knocked around playing roller derby. THE TROUBLE WITH DESTINY is her third novel.

  1. This cover is almost too cute for words! I just love the mixture of real life models and illustration. Also, how wonderful does that synopsis sound? It reminds me of the romantic comedies I couldn't get enough of in the '90's, and I can honestly say I don't think I've ever encountered a story featuring a drum major/band geek before, especially one that takes place on a cruise ship. I'll be adding this book to my to-be-read list immediately. Thank you so much for sharing, Ginger!

  2. I am so happy there is a cover now!

  3. I want to make a card out of this cover right now!

  4. Lauren Morrill gets SUCH good covers! Can't wait to read this one too. Her books are on my auto-read list! :D

  5. This sounds so cute, and I love that cover! I just hope there's not a love triangle. :P

    Thanks for sharing, G!
