2011 Cover Alert: Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury

Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury is a Summer 2011 YA Release (5/2/11) by Atheneum Books for Young Readers/Simon & Schuster.

*Cover may not be final*

Summary: This is Agnes Wilkins’ debut season and already she’s attracting the attention of one of England’s most eligible and desirable men: Lord Showalter. He’s been quite forward about his intentions and Agnes finds this at once thrilling and terrifying. He is handsome and wealthy and has this quirky interest in helping England amass the world’s finest collection of Egyptian artifacts. It could be a good match—but everything Agnes knows about courtship and high society romance comes from A. Lady novels, and it seems to be a rule that men who are too good to be true are usually hiding something. But, what Showalter is hiding is not crumbling finances or boarish behavior. He is deceiving the whole British Empire. He is spy working for Napoleon, his orders smuggled into London in Egyptian artifacts—like the one Agnes pockets while at a mummy unwrapping party at Showalter’s home. Her innocent interest in this trinket (and childish need to keep it) jump starts a chain of events that bring out dangerous characters, dangerous circumstances, and the biggest danger of all—true love. Jennifer Bradbury’s knack for suspense and adventure make this an amazingly rich, wildly compelling and utterly fascinating novel about the secrets in and out of a mummy’s tomb. Keep your wits and trust your heart.

My Thoughts: I really love this cover! It's very unique and different. I hope they don't change it, I enjoy the cartoon quality to it. Also, the summary sounds refreshing and I can't wait till next year!

What are your thoughts on Wrapped?
