Here it is. And here is the Amazon link for anyone wishing to pre-order the book, which goes on sale August 26. My favorite part of the whole cover is this wonderful blurb from the epically talented Scott Westerfeld:
Artfully fractured and wickedly smart. A brilliant screwball comedy about love, self knowledge, and the secret identities inside all of us.
The funny thing about that blurb is that I didn’t even realize I’d written a comedy until I read that. Then again, I did spend a few years doing comedy punch-ups on B movies with names like Downhill Willie so I guess it’s all part of some screwball continuum.
Here’s the synopsis from the back of the book:
As far as anyone at her high school knows, Jill McTeague is an average smart girl trying to get her dream date to ask her to the prom.
What no one knows, except for Jillâ€™s mom and dad, is that for the four days Jill is out of school each month, she is not Jill at all. She is Jack, a genuine boyâ€”complete with all the parts. Jack lives his four days per month in the solitude of Jillâ€™s room. But his personality has been building since the cycling began. He is less and less content with his confinement and his cycles are becoming more frequent. Now Jillâ€™s question about the prom isnâ€™t who she’ll go with, but who she’ll be when the big night arrives.
