EXCLUSIVE: See the cover of OUR OWN PRIVATE UNIVERSE by Robin Talley!
One of our favorite YA authors is Robin Talley. Her work includes the incredible historicalLies We Tell Ourselves, the challenging contemporary What We Left Behind, and the upcoming queer girl retelling of Macbeth entitledAs I Descended. So when I had the chance to debut the cover of her new novel Our Own Private Universe, I jumped at the chance - and isn’t it absolutely gorgeous?!
In Our Own Private Universe,
fifteen-year-old Aki Hunter knows she’s bisexual, but up until now
she’s only dated guys—and her best friend, Lori, is the only person
she’s out to. When she and Lori set off on a four-week youth-group
mission trip in a small Mexican town, it never crosses Aki’s mind that
there might be anyone in the group she’d be interested in dating. But
that all goes out the window when Aki meets Christa.
Our Own Private Universe releases in February 2017 from HarlequinTeen.
In this game of life
your family is the court
and the ball is your heart.
No matter how good you are,
no matter how down you get,
on the court.”
