New Cover on the Premises: The V Girl

I couldn't resist the opportunity to vote for my favourite cover for THE V GIRL, by Mya Robarts, on Goodreads. There were several great options, and I remember I had two final contestants in my mind. Alas, here is the final result. I hope you like it cause I'm SO eager to read this book!!

The V Girl by Mya Robarts 

Publication date: July 1st 2014
Genres: Dystopia, New Adult

V for Virgin.

V for Valiant.
In post-apocalyptic North America, raping and sexual slavery are legal. Lila Velez, desperately wants to lose her virginity before the troops visit her town and can take it away by force. She makes plans to seduce her only friend, Rey, the most attractive man in her town. Lila does not love him but he is the only man who has shown her true affection, an affection she is willing to take as a substitute of love.

Lila’s coping mechanism to her mother’s rape and kidnapping is her secret. A secret that will bring her closer to Aleksey, a foreign, broody man, she distrusts because his links to the troops and his rough, yet irresistible appearance. He offers Lila an alternative to her plans, a possibility that terrifies her…and tempts her in spite of herself.

All the while Lila will have to find a way to live in the constant company of death, slavery, starvation, sexual abuse and the danger of losing the people she loves the most.

MYA ROBARTS: I am a bookaholic and regret nothing.
I am convinced the New Adult genre has more to offer than just College Romance. The possibilities are endless and I am more than willing to explore them all. I'll quote Mario Vargas Llosa on this.
“The writer’s job is to write with rigor, with commitment, to defend what they believe with all the talent they have. I think that’s part of the moral obligation of a writer, which cannot be only purely artistic. I think a writer has some kind of responsibility at least to participate in the civic debate. I think literature is impoverished, if it becomes cut from the main agenda of people, of society, of life.”

That future looks bleak, but also full of bookish drama.
Would you like to find out what happens to Lila, book buddies?
