Cover Reveal for THE BODY INSTITUTE by Carol Riggs!

Okay, so I've known Carol for years. We've been friends on the blogosphere for a long time. I am very excited for her book, THE BODY INSTITUTE, to hit shelves! September 1 is SO FAR AWAY. I can't wait to read the book, and today I get to help reveal her cover.

First, let's learn a little bit about the book: Meet Morgan Dey, one of the top teen Reducers at The Body Institute.

Thanks to cutting-edge technology, Morgan can temporarily take over another girl’s body, get her in shape, and then return to her own body—leaving her client slimmer, more toned, and feeling great. Only there are a few catches…

For one, Morgan won’t remember what happens in her “Loaner” body. Once she’s done, she won’t recall walks with her new friend Matt, conversations with the super-cute Reducer she’s been text-flirting with, or the uneasy feeling she has that the director of The Body Institute is hiding something. Still, it’s all worth it in the name of science. Until the glitches start…

Suddenly, residual memories from her Loaner are cropping up in Morgan’s mind. She’s feeling less like herself and more like someone else. And when protests from an anti–Body Institute organization threaten her safety, she’ll have to decide if being a Reducer is worth the cost of her body and soul…

Ahhh! I love it! I think Entangled Teen did a SUPER-fabulous job with this cover. It's intriguing, with the almost-sepia-like (that's a technical term, yo) quality of it. The city in the background, the blue font. It's gorgeous!!


About Carol: I'm a YA writer represented by Kelly Sonnack of Andrea Brown Literary. My sci-fi novel THE BODY INSTITUTE explores the themes of society, identity, and body image. I live in the beautiful, green state of Oregon and have a Studio Arts degree; I'm an SCBWI member. 

You'll usually find me in my writing cave, surrounded by my dragon collection and the characters in my head. I also enjoy reading--mostly young adult novels--as well as drawing, painting, and quilting. I also attend writing conferences, walk with my husband, and enjoy music and dance of all kinds.
