Cover Reveal and Signed ARC Giveaway: Crewel by Gennifer Albin

Release Date: October 16, 2012
Publisher: Farrar, Strous, and Giroux Books for Young Readers

Incapable. Awkward. Artless.

That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.

Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.

Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.

I, for one, am very happy that the dystopian explosion in YA doesn't seem to be slowing down yet. There are still so many good works coming from this trend that I would be sad to see it end. What do you all think of the cover and summary? Leave me a comment and let me know!

And for those of you who are as excited as I am, the official website for the Crewel Trilogy is hosting a signed ARC giveaway! Get there before March 22nd for your chance to enter, and good luck to all!
