YA horror fans… mark your calendars for September 15th.
When we first got a glimpse at debut author Dawn Kurtagich's The Dead House, our reaction was: WHOA, that is cool. And creepy.
Naturally, we had to know what Dawn thought as well. She responded:
I love this cover! When I first saw some concept art, which looked very much like the cover you see here, I was blown away. How did the Little, Brown YR art team know? You see, my first reaction was: that’s Kaitlyn.We love it, and we may be slightly obsessed with how mysterious and dark it is. Just slightly.
Kaitlyn’s first words are: “I am myself again.” She certainly is herself on this cover!
Kaitlyn is a girl who has only ever known darkness, and she’s trapped by that. When I saw her on the cover, hidden by shadows, wrapped in those sinister branches, rising up out of the Dead House itself, I knew we had her. We had Kaitlyn. We had the cover. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Wondering who Kaitlyn is? Get the full details of this dark tale on Goodreads, and add it to your to-read shelf. This is one chilling psychological horror story you’re not going to want to miss this fall.
+ check out the UK cover from our friends at fiercefiction. They’ve got a different one, and it’s just as cool.
