Cover reveal & book trailer: Stained by Cheryl Rainfield

Hi everyone

Today on my blog, I’m showcasing the cover for Cheryl Rainfield’s up and coming novel, Stained.

For those not familiar with Cheryl, she’s well-known for tackling tough topics such as bullying in her novels and draws inspiration from her own traumatic experience as a young girl.

Stained is her latest novel and releases on the 19 November 2013.

Without further ado, here is the gorgeous and haunting cover for Stained, followed by the book trailer:

About the book:
Publication date: Nov 19, 2013 (published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
Sometimes you have to be your own hero….

In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for "normal." Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust.

But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.


What Cheryl has to say:
Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED,

I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth.

Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened.

And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape.

I hope readers will see Sarah's strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.

Ah, that's such a mood-invoking cover. I haven't read any of the author's books yet, but they sound like powerful stuff.
