Cover Reveal :: Transcend by Christine Fonseca

WOO HOO!!!! The day is here! The day celebrating the reveal of Christine Fonseca's Transcend, a YA psychological thriller hitting shelves on September 18, 2012. Here's a little blurb about the story:

All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is an escape from his family's rigid expectations for his life; someone to inspire his music. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his life music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents’ control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart. Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity.
As part of the celebration, Christine is asking everyone to share a secret of their own. So, here's mine:
Besides Reading, I also love to Dance. I have 8 years of professional training in 'Bharatnatyam', an Indian Classical dance form and also trained in 'Creative Dance' (fusion of all dance forms from round the globe) for  over a year. Each year I have achieved distinction. In class, at functions and on stage am a confident performer. 
But what people do not know, even the ones closest to me, is that when there is no one around, I like to put on music, jump around randomly (like crazy) -- then call it 'dancing' ;) -- and that's what I love the most.

And now...what we've all been waiting for. The cover for Transcend:
