This cover and the release date was just dropped this month and you GUYS, this book is LIFE to me! I heard about this book when it was announced last year but been impatiently waiting for information on it. But now we can feast our eyes on this COVER! I think this book will probably steal my heart next year and I can imagine that not enough Moulin Rogue or Phantom GIFs will be enough. This combination is a serious dream come true for YA and I’m really hoping that this will satisfy my need for this book.
I’ve been a fan of both Moulin Rogue and Phantom of the Opera since I was a teen! Moulin Rogue was everywhere was a young teen and the soundtrack was the one soundtrack me and a few friends would listen to. I’ve seen the movie SO many times and I always have people watch it who have never seen it. Then, I saw the 2004 Phantom movie when I a bit older, having not heard the original Broadway cast. Once the overture started and the picture started going from black and white to color, I was transfixed by this movie. For years, movies and musicals like this just speak to me on every level and now there will be a YA book that will hopefully have those vibes.
Is it June yet???
