Solstice Cover Reveal

I'm so happy to share the cover for Solstice by P. J. Hoover! I have already read Solstice and I love it! The cover really represents the story. I seriously can't wait to share my review with you next year. What are your thoughts?


Tor Teen, June 2013

About the book:

Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles that threaten to destroy the earth. Amid this global heating crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom.

Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth.

An imaginative melding of mythology and dystopia, Solstice is the first YA novel by talented newcomer P. J. Hoover.

About the author:

P. J. Hoover first fell in love with Greek mythology in sixth grade thanks to the book Mythology by Edith Hamilton. After a fifteen year bout as an electrical engineer designing computer chips for a living, P. J. decided to take her own stab at mythology and started writing books for kids and teens. When not writing, P. J. spends time with her husband and two kids and enjoys practicing kung fu, solving Rubik's cubes, and watching Star Trek.

To celebrate the cover reveal P. J. is hosting a giveaway so go visit her blog!

    1. Yes, Juju. PJ said she did quite a bit of work to it and that it's BETTER now. And I loved it before, so I'm anxious to read it again!
