It’s a cornucopia of cover reveals at Upstart Crow this week!
Today, we are thrilled to share the cover for Amy Allgeyer’s riveting debut novel, DIG TOO DEEP (Albert Whitman, April 2016). The good folks at YA Books Central did the official reveal yesterday, and you can hop over there to enter to win a free advance reading copy.
It’s not just that Liberty Briscoe feels like an outsider in Ebbotsville, Kentucky. She expected it wouldn’t be easy to move from the city to her granny’s place for her last year of high school. Still, Liberty can’t shake the feeling that something’s not quite right. Everyone says the water’s safe, yet nobody drinks it. When Granny becomes sick, like so many others in town, Liberty starts to wonder about the water, the people who tested it, and the coal mining company that took the top off Tanner’s Peak.
Now Liberty must follow her instincts to uncover secrets, despite those who think she’s crazy to ask questions, including her own boyfriend. But even as the threats become consequences, she digs deeper. What’s more dangerous: the water in the valley or the search for the truth.
DIG TOO DEEP features a butt-kicking protagonist in Liberty Briscoe–she never backs down from doing what’s right, even when it puts her in danger. Be sure to put this book on your must-read list for Spring!
