Cover Lovin'


Oh so pretty.

But...wait for it...wait for it...

A lot can happen in eleven minutes. Decker can run two miles easily in eleven minutes. I once wrote an English essay in ten. No lie. And God knows Carson Levine can talk a girl out of her clothes in half that time.

Eleven minutes might as well be eternity under water. It only takes three minutes without air for loss of consciousness. Permanent brain damage begins at four minutes. And then when the oxygen runs out, full cardiac arrest occurs. Death is possible at five minutes. Probable at seven. Definitey at ten.



Decker pulled me out at eleven.
 
We double dog dare you not to want to read this book.

Ooh, this sounds like a good one!

OMG, that blurb just gave me the chills. Holy cow.

No no no. You can't do this to me. My kids won't let me buy anymore books until I've read all the YA ones on the bookshelf that I haven't read yet (and that's a lot of books. Some from last year).

But I so want this one. I'm putting it on my wish list. The top of my wish list. :D

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Oh, wow. I should be finished my pile by Jan 3, 2012. ;)

Wow! Looks and sounds amazing!

that blurb is, like: aww, yeah, show 'em how it's done status. perfect example of a quick pitch that has me hustling to my online shopping cart.

Krispy said...

That was a fantastic teaser. I didn't realize I was holding my breath until I finished. Thanks!

Holy Sh**. I'm going to the bookstore at lunch. I have to pick up more than one anyway and I have to read this one.

The covers are just getting unbelievably good. It's art.

Sandy said...

That synopsis gave me chills. Chills! Pun not intended. Still internally shuddering over here. I loathe the cold and I have a fear of drowning, this read should be pretty intense for me xD.

But someone already beat you ladies too it cause this is already on my TBR hehe.

Riv Re said...

*shivers* So cool! An awesome cover, as well.

K. M. Walton said...

Yeah, that's some cover copy. Great in every way. Looking forward to reading this one.

Regina said...

I'm so all over this book now. I want to find it and get my hands on it so I can read it all in one sitting.:)

Kristin said...

Now that is some kind of copy. Good heavens. And the cover with the falling snow and reflection. Book designers have to stay on their toes, no?

Jill Hathaway said...

A fabulous cover for a fabulous book!

Steph said...

Jebus I can't wait to get my paws on this one!!

Love love LOVE this cover. This has been on my radar for a while, so at BEA, I literally stood awkwardly in front of the Bloomsbury/Walker booth until someone relented and opened a new box of Fracture ARCs.
