The cover has been unveiled for Andrew McCarthy’s forthcoming book, Just Fly Away. We’ve embedded the full image for the jacket design above—what do you think?

Here’s more from the press release: “In McCarthy’s novel, when fifteen-year-old Lucy Willows discovers that her father has a child from a brief affair, an eight-year-old boy named Thomas who lives in the same suburban New Jersey town, she begins to question everything she thinks she knows about her family and her own life. Written with wisdom and sympathy in a distinct and original voice, Just Fly Away is about family secrets, the limits of forgiveness, and finding one’s way in the world.”

McCarthy has become well-known as an actor who has starred in several popular movies including Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo’s Fire, and Less Than Zero. Entertainment Weekly reports that this project marks his debut as a young adult author. The publisher has scheduled the release for Spring 2017.
