Cover Reveal! The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

I'm really excited to tell you about a book that's going to be released next summer!  It's called The Near Witch, by Victoria Schwab, and the blurb (which is at the end of this post) sounds incredible!  I've gotten to know Victoria a little over the last few months on Twitter, and I think she's one of the funniest people I've "met".  If you haven't ever watched her and the other YA Rebels vlog, you should definitely do that!  Victoria just received the ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) of her new book, and she's sharing them with us!  Check it out!

The Blurb:

"The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.
If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.
There are no strangers in the town of Near. 

These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life. But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.

As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget."

It sounds good, doesn't it??  It's EXACTLY all the things that I love in a book.  I'm not going to lie, I think this is my most highly anticipated new release!  Congratulations, Victoria!  We're so happy for you and can't wait to read that beautiful book!
