Uproar Books has set a July 1 launch date for the Young Adult fantasy novel Sand Dancer by Trudie Skies.

a

Sand Dancer is the story of a half-starved peasant girl named Mina who must disguise herself as a young nobleman if she hopes to find her father’s killer among the sons of the kingdom’s wealthiest families.

a

“It’s a fast-paced adventure wrapped around a heartbreaking dilemma,” said Rick Lewis, publisher at Uproar Books. “When Mina’s pursuit of justice leads her to a new life with a truly loving family, she knows she’ll lose it all if she doesn’t let her father’s killer go free. But can she? Should she?”

a

“This is a book about never giving up control of your life, no matter what the world tells you, no matter what life throws at you,” said Skies. “Embrace who you are, and embrace the people who accept you for who you are.”

Uproar Books also unveiled the cover art by French illustrator Edouard Noisette, along with the novel’s tag line: “One sword. One thousand secrets.”

Sand Dancer will be available July 1 at all major online retailers for a special launch price of $2.99 for ebook or $16.99 for paperback.
