Cover Reveal: Dead Girl

Today is the cover reveal for my newest Tessa Marie book Dead Girl, a YA contemporary, releasing March 31, 2016. This book. Oh man this book. It has been with me from the very beginning. I began work on it at least five years ago and it has been through a ton of rewrites since then. This was the first book that I ever cried while writing. I remember trying so hard to type the words out but unable to see the screen through the tears. These characters brought me on an emotional roller coaster and because of that they are very near and dear to my heart. I've been waiting a very long time to bring this book to all of you and I cannot wait for you to read it.

So here we go. The blurb and cover for Dead Girl:

If her mother wasn’t watching, Kylie Presby would punch Queen Bee, Natalie Silvers, in the face -again. But as Kylie wipes her tears away with the layers of toilet paper encasing her car, she knows she can’t retaliate like she did last time. Her dead mother wouldn’t approve. Kylie no longer cares about popularity. Invisible would work just fine.

Then the new kid, Braydon, mysterious, good looking and too clever for his own good, shows up and sacrifices his social status, becoming Kylie’s shield from the front line assault. After enough chocolate ice cream and movies it’s as if they’re best friends. Crazy, since Kylie knows so little about him.

As Natalie continues her relentless attacks on Kylie another person deals with his own line of bullies. Jack Stine was popular until his deepest secret was revealed and his friends abandoned him. Kylie and Jack bond over their tormentors and form an unbreakable friendship.

Three lost souls each with a story that binds them together, but will it be enough when the bullying goes too far and secrets are revealed?
