Two Contemporary Covers Revealed Today!

I was checking out my blog feed for the day and saw just how busy the publishers have been!
DARE YOU TO, the long-awaited companion to Katie McGarry's sleeper surprise hit of the year PUSHING THE LIMITS, now has an official cover:
DARE YOU TO by Katie McGarry
I loved PUSHING THE LIMITS more than I thought I would, and am excited to read McGarry's new book, even though I wasn't initially a fan of Beth.  I love contemporary books with hard issues, which is one reason I liked this so much, and DARE YOU TO sounds like it will also be hard-hitting!
  And is it just me, or do her gritty covers look like they could sit right next to the ones by Simone Elkeles? :)

"I dare you..."

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all....
Leah Rae Miller's contemporary debut novel with the new teen imprint from Entangled also has a cover now:

This cover is fun and light for summer.  Can't you just see everyone picking this up?
Plus, I want her shoes.  I want her shoes!!!!!  And I don't even like red.  But I covet them!!!
I think the concept of this one will appeal to a lot of people, because the feelings of being popular, yet an inner nerd resonate on many levels!

On the outside, seventeen-year-old Madelyne Summers looks like your typical blond cheerleader—perky, popular, and dating the star quarterback. But inside, Maddie spends more time agonizing over what will happen in the next issue of her favorite comic book than planning pep rallies with her squad. That she’s a nerd hiding in a popular girl's body isn’t just unknown, it's anti-known. And she needs to keep it that way.

Summer is the only time Maddie lets her real self out to play, but when she slips up and the adorkable guy behind the local comic shop’s counter uncovers her secret, she’s busted. Before she can shake a pom-pom, Maddie’s whisked into Logan’s world of comic conventions, live-action role-playing, and first-person-shooter video games. And she loves it. But the more she denies who she really is, the deeper her lies become…and the more she risks losing Logan forever.
