Cover Reveal: RIPTIDE by Lindsey Scheibe

I'm so happy to be helping fellow Austinite Lindsey Scheibe with the cover reveal for her debut young adult novel! In case you guys don't know Lindsey, she's a fantastic, giving person, and I couldn't be happier for her!

So without waiting any longer, here is her gorgeous cover!!!!!


RIPTIDE by Lindsey Scheibe (Flux, May 8, 2013)

About the book:

One summer...

Endless possibilities.

17-year-old Grace is fully aware her best friend Ford has a crush on her, but she refuses to acknowledge it. Surfing with him is the only time she forgets about her abusive father, stifling mother, and the pressure to be impossibly perfect. She's not willing to risk their lifelong friendship to find out if it could be something more.

No matter how tempting it may be.

All Grace wants is to graduate, get out of the house, and make the UC San Diego surf team. The problem? She's never had the guts to sign up for a competition, the only way she'll ever get noticed by the UC scouts. Until that is, Ford does it for her.

Now she has one summer to train. One summer to prove she's good enough-- to the scouts, to her parents, and most of all, to herself. As the training grows more intense, the violence at home escalates, and the romance reaches a point of no return.

Grace is about to gain everything she's ever wanted... or lose the only things that have ever mattered.

Lindsey Scheibe lives life on the edge. She's tried her hand at surfing, bouldering, and most terrifying of all... publishing. Lindsey's YA novel, RIPTIDE, sold to flux books and debuts in May of 2013. These days, you can find her hanging out with her family, where she's traded her hiking boots for family dinners and theatrical bedtime stories.

The risks seem pretty high for the MC in this novel. Very intriguing story. Wishing RIPTIDE tremendous success and smiles to Lindsey for making her publishing dream come true.
