Cover Reveal: RUBY REINVENTED by Ronni Arno

One of the most FAQ’s I get from school visits is, “Do you get to design your own cover?”

To which I answer, “You wouldn’t want me to design my own cover!”

I can barely draw stick figures. 

I always lose in Pictionary. 

My parents never saved my art projects.

Luckily, there are incredible artists out there, and one of them plucked the image of Ruby out of my brain and artfully placed her on the cover of RUBY REINVENTED. This brilliant artist’s name is Lucy Truman, and I’m so grateful that she captured RUBY REINVENTED so perfectly!

Are you ready to see the cover for RUBY REINVENTED?

Because I can’t wait to show you!


Isn’t it adorable?

Here are just a few things that I love about this cover:

1)  Ruby looks like Ruby! Just how I pictured her in my mind.

2)  Midcoast Maine looks like Midcoast Maine! Cute little storefronts, old fashioned lamp posts, and a harbor in the background. Perfect.

3)  The stars. There are quite a few stars in RUBY REINVENTED… both the celebrity kind and the kind in the sky. The stars on RUBY’s cover are there for good reason. And you’ll find out why when you read the book!

I hope you love this as much as I do. Please read on to learn more about Ruby, and enter to win our most scrumptious giveaway!


When 12-year-old Ruby Miller learns that her BFF’s are only friends with her because of her famous parents, she finds a place far from celebrity-crazy Hollywood--a Maine boarding school.

In her panic to distance herself from her star-studded folks, Ruby tells her new friends that she’s an orphan. She feels awful lying to her weird but wonderful roommate Summer (the first real friend Ruby has ever had), but not awful enough. In fact, now that nobody’s comparing her to her remarkable parents, Ruby can finally let her unique talents as a dress designer take center stage.

But when Ruby finds herself connecting with a boy who really did lose his parents, she’s torn between who she is and who she’s pretending to be. And with Parent’s Weekend approaching, she must find a way to keep her secret... without losing her new best friend, the trust of her first crush, and the chance to shine as the designer of her own fashion show.


Ruby leaves Hollywood for a boarding school in Midcoast Maine. One of Ruby’s favorite things about Maine are the mouth-watering blueberry pancakes. Now you can enjoy your own Maine-inspired breakfast, no matter where you are!
