Cinderskella by Amie and Bethany Borst: Cover Reveal, Giveaway and a SQUEE!

Cindy is just a normal 11¾-year-old girl. At least until she wakes up one night and finds out she’s dead. Well, she isn't technically dead—she just doesn't have any hair . . . or a nose . . . or skin. Yep—all bones, no body.

Human by day and skeleton by night, Cindy is definitely cursed. And because her mother recently died, Cindy has no one to turn to except a father who is now scared of her and an evil stepmother who makes her do the housecleaning with a toothbrush. To make matters worse, the Spring Fling dance is approaching, and Ethan, the cutest boy in sixth grade, doesn’t seem to know Cindy exists. Of course, Cindy doesn’t think letting Ethan find out she’s part skeleton is the best way to introduce herself.

While facing such perils as pickled pig’s feet, a wacky fortune teller, and a few quick trips to the Underworld, Cindy’s determined to break the curse—even for a single night.

Cinderskella is available for purchase at Barnes & Noble (

This is a very special cover reveal for me today.  I used to live near Amie and Bethany and Amie was a good friend to me.  I'll never forget our trip to the Chocolate Festival.  :)  Now Amie and Bethany are authors and that is so super exciting!  I'm so happy for them both.  I cannot wait to read Cinderskella!

Bethanie is a spunky 13 year old middle-schooler who loves archery, long bike rides and studying edible plant-life. Cinderskella is their first book together and is part of the Scarily Ever Laughter series.
