THE CASQUETTE GIRLS by Alys Arden Cover Reveal

Hi, today I’m helping out my local writer buddy Alys Arden by sharing in teh reveal of the new cover to the revised edition of her book, THE CASQUETTE GIRLS.

Here’s the cover, ta-da!

The Casquette Girls

And here’s the dope on the book:

The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden
Published by: Skyscape
Publication date: November 17th 2015
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis:

After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return. Adele wants nothing more than to resume her normal life, but with the silent city resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition.

Strange events—even for New Orleans—lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years. The chaos she accidentally unleashes threatens not only her but also everyone she knows.

Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, Adele must untangle a web of magic that weaves the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has secrets and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless…you’re immortal.

Revised edition: This edition of The Casquette Girls includes editorial revisions.

I’m reading the book now.  It’s hard reading about the aftermath of Katrina (just called “the Storm” in the book) but it’s certainly a dramatic milieu in which to set a story.  You can tell Alys really lived it.  Or, we survivors can.
Here’s Alys:

Hey, if you happen to be attending the Writers for New Orleans Conference this weekend, sat hello to Alys and myself.  We are both attending.  I’ll write more about that later.
Congratulations, Alys, on the new edition of the book, and good luck!
