Cover Reveal: ‘Teen Frankenstein’ by Chandler Baker!

5
We’re excited to have our first ever cover reveal here on Lytherus! The cover for Chandler Baker’s upcoming High School Horror book, Teen Frankenstein, recently got a fun overhaul, and we’re bringing the new look to you exclusively. We’re also really excited to share some thoughts on the development of the cover from one of the heads of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, Jean Feiwel. Be sure to check out her insights below.
So, without further ado, here’s the new cover!

Here’s what Jean had to say about its creation:

The challenge of creating a distinctive and singular image for Teen Frankenstein was the ubiquitous number of images associated with the name.  The classic Shelley novel–of which there are multiple versions and the many television/movies old and new.  So how to set yourself apart? What I love about the cover our Creative Director, Rich Deas, has come up with is that it’s simple and sinister.  It takes a minute to know what you’re looking at.  You’re drawn closer.. And then you see the profile, the lightening, the staples. Ah, there he is–Teen Frankenstein.  Grim, but beautiful.  
-Jean Feiwel, Senior VP and Director, Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group
I definitely did not see the profile until it was pointed out to me in the above description, and that makes it all the more awesome. The clean, evocative image is a great fit for the upcoming book.
Enjoy horror? Here’s the description of the book to whet your appetite:

It was a dark and stormy night when Tor Frankenstein accidentally hits someone with her car. And kills him. But, all is not lost-Tor, being the scientific genius she is, brings him back to life…

Thus begins a twisty, turn-y take on a familiar tale, set in the town of Hollow Pines, Texas, where high school is truly horrifying.

High School Horror: Teen Frankenstein by Chandler Baker hits shelves on January 12, 2016.
