2016 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - November Winner


The winner of the November 2016 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars is Children of the Country by Abigail R. Shaffer from Outpost19 with 65% of all votes.



Children of the Country
Outpost19, November 1, 2016
Trade Paperback, 290 pages

2016 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - November Winner
A debut coming of age story set in Southern woods filled with drugs, sex and violence--and a hidden tradition of voodoo-like magic. In a hard-scrabble town where family history defines destinies, a handful of teenagers bear witness to old traumas that still haunt adults working to keep food on the table. Modern pressures deepen old ruts, and in a circle of friends, each looks for their own path. A local drug ring offers high-speed comforts, and while some fall for easy choices, others find the strength to make their own place in the woods.
