Cover Stories: The Naughty List by Suzanne Young

TheNaughtyList-hi cover.jpg
Suzanne Young is one of the most fun authors around. Proof: She does a dance when she gets a new book contract... publicly!

Her latest title is The Naughty List, and here's what it's about (summary from indiebound):

As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn't enough responsibility! Tessa Crimson's the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad-turned-spy society dedicated to bringing dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting wouldn't be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List has been proven 100% guilty!

When Tessa's own boyfriend shows up on the List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the rest, or will
Tessa's sneaky ways end in catastrophe?

And now, here's Suzanne with a little bit about the cover:

"I had a cover idea! I wanted a cheerleader peering over a fence. Or a cheer squad holding spy equipment behind their back. Instead, I got a sneak peek inside a window. It looks great for the entire series.

"Okay, truthfully, I laughed when I first saw the cover..."

Read the rest of Suzanne's Cover Story, and see the cover for So Many Boys, #2 in The Naughty List series (out in June).

Thanks for posting another great cover story! I love the covers for these series and they really make me want to read the books, even though they don't really sound like my cup of tea!
