Cover Alert!


Author: Josephine Angelini
Release Date: June 1, 2011

Blurb:
Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention.

Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?


 WOW! all I could think of when I read this description was that it sounded absolutely amazing! I honestly can't wait until I can get a copy of this... June 1st being the latest possible date for me to obtain it. I have to have this! It has been a very long time since I have honestly jonesed for a book... This is that book!

The cover is absolutely amazing as well! Its whimsical and romantic with the woman standing on a cliff by the ocean, with her dress and hair blowing in the breeze towards the water and the stormy sky in the background is a wonderful finish. The color scheme is beautiful with the purples and blues. I don't think that I would ever tire of looking at this cover.
