We’re so excited to reveal the cover for Mariella Hunt’s first book, Dissonance! There’s a haunting simplicity to it that echoes the themes of disability (yay for diversity!), isolation, and hollow promises. And now that I’ve made the necessary musical puns, feast your eyes on this cover:
Fifteen-year-old Allie Grant lives crippled by her illness. Though kept in isolation, she’s never alone: A spirit named Song lurks in the silence of her bedroom.
When Song reveals its dark nature on the night of her recital, the show ends in tragedy. Verging on death, Allie’s taken in by an uncle she’s never met.
Julian claims to be a Muse with power over music and answers that’ll heal her. The cure she needs is rare, requiring of him a difficult sacrifice. Allie soon suspects her uncle has a secret that’ll turn her world around.
But with days left to live, she might fade without learning the truth…like the finishing chord of a song.
About the Author
Mariella Hunt is a writer with a strong love for coffee and guinea pigs. She likes using big words in everyday speech, and keeps journals of quotes from the greats. Most days you’ll find her on a well-loved armchair, reading–or working on one of her many projects. As she cannot stick to an outline, she rewrites way too much.
Thanks to Mariella for letting us show this to the world! It’s great to be able to support diverse representation and self-pubbed novelists at the same time.
