Cover Reveal: Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

I've been eagerly awaiting the cover of my most anticipated YA debut novel for 2012 to be revealed, and it's finally here! There's kissing and hand-holding (aww!), and I think the look of the font and the way it's placed on the cover is so unique! And I just LOVE the tagline 'War is Only Half the Battle.' It's a contemporary novel about a young Marine who is back from war and... Well, you're going to have to read the rest of the summary down below to find out more! ;)

Something Like Normal by Trish Doller
Release Date: June 19, 2012
Publisher: Bloomsbury

"A powerful debut novel about a young Marine's return home from Afghanistan and the new life and love he finds while fending off the ghosts of war.

When Travis Stephenson returns home from Afghanistan, his parents are on the brink of divorce, his brother has stolen his girlfriend and his car, and nightmares of his best friend getting killed keep him completely spooked. But when he runs into Harper Gray, a girl who despises him for trashing her reputation with a middle school lie, life actually starts looking up. As Travis and Harper see more of each other, he starts falling for her and the way through the family meltdown, the post-traumatic stress, and the possibility of an interesting future begins to emerge.

His sense of humor, sense of his own strength, and incredible sense of honor make Travis an irresistible and eminently lovable hero in this fantastic and timely debut novel."
