Today is a very exciting day – it's the day ACID releases in the US from Delacorte! It's being published as a gorgeous hardback and an audiobook and I'm really happy with how it's turned out.
If you haven't seen it already, here's the cover (Delacorte decided to use the same image as the UK edition, because after all, who could top Larry Rostant's amazing portrayal of Jenna?):
Here's the blurb:
The year is 2113. In Jenna Strong's world, ACID—the most brutal controlling police force in history—rule supreme. No throwaway comment or whispered dissent goes unnoticed—or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a horrendous crime she struggles to remember. But Jenna's violent prison time has taught her how to survive by any means necessary. When a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed, and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID, and try to uncover the truth about what really happened on that terrible night two years ago. They have taken her life, her freedom, and her true memories away from her. How can she reclaim anything when she doesn't know who to trust?
Strong, gritty writing, irresistible psychological suspense, and action consume the novel as Jenna struggles to survive against the all-controlling ACID. Seriously sinister stuff.
And here's a picture of the gorgeous book itself! Isn't it pretty?
So all that remains is to say a ginormous THANK YOU to the team at Delacorte for bringing Jenna Stateside – editors Michelle, Jodie and Rebecca, and publicity assistant extraordinaire Sadie. And, of course, to everyone at Random House UK (who published ACID here last year) for helping to make this happen in the first place!
Happy US Book Birthday, ACID!
P.S. – Should you wish to purchase ACID in book, ebook or audio format, it's available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Indiebound.
