Dude, I'm so excited today! One of my good friends, Jessie Humphries, gets to reveal her cover today! Her debut YA novel is called KILLING RUBY ROSE, and it's coming out from Amazon Children's Publishing/Skyscape in May.

And the cover is finally ready to be released! I've seen it through several versions, and it is KILLER (see what I did there?)! I've also read the book, and believe me when I say you're going to love it.

Let's first see what KILLING RUBY ROSE is about: In sunny southern California, Ruby Rose is known for her killer looks and her killer SAT scores. But ever since her dad, an LAPD SWAT sergeant, died six months ago, she’s also got a few killer secrets.

To cope with her father’s death, Ruby has been trying to stay focused on school (the top spot in her class is on the line) and spending time with friends (her Jimmy Choos and Mahnolo Blahniks are nothing if not loyal), but after months of therapy and more than a few months of pathetic parenting by her mom, District Attorney Jane Rose, Ruby decides to pick up where her dad left off and starts going after the bad guys herself.

But when Ruby ends up killing a murderer in defense of another, she discovers that she’s gone from being the huntress to the hunted. There’s a sick mastermind at play, and he has Ruby in his sights. Ruby must discover who’s using her to implement twisted justice before she ends up changing Valentino red for prison orange.

With a gun named Smith, a talent for martial arts, and a boyfriend with eyes to die for, Ruby is ready to face the worst. And if a girl’s forced to kill, won’t the guilt sit more easily in a pair of Prada peep-toe pumps?

See what I mean? You definitely want to pre-order the book and add it to your Goodreads list NOW.

And here's the beautiful cover!

Isn't she fabulous! I absolutely love the sunsetty colors, and the sort of puppetty girl, and the large font, and the two R's at the bottom for the series. I think it's a slam dunk in every sense!
