Scott Westerfeld, New York Times bestselling author of the Uglies series, and most recently, Afterworlds, has revealed the cover for his latest novel, Zeroes. Zeroes is set to be released on September 29, 2015 from Simon & Schuster Childrens Books.
Ethan, aka “Scam”, has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn’t just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn’t consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts – like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. So now Ethan needs help. And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him – his former group of friends, the self-named “zeros” who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. Brought back together by Scam’s latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action. – Goodreads summary
According to Westerfeld, the title will be printed in fifth color printing, which will make it a bright, florescent yellow.
