Cover Reveal: MOVING TARGET by Christina Diaz Gonzalez

By Cindy L. Rodriguez

We’re really excited to reveal the cover for Christina Diaz Gonzalez’s latest middle grade novel, Moving Target, which will be out with Scholastic in September.

Here’s the description:

Cassie Arroyo, an American studying in Rome, has her world ripped apart when someone tries to kill her father, an art history professor at an Italian university. Is she their next target?

Cassie sets out to uncover what is happening, only to learn that she is a member of an ancient bloodline that enables her to use the Spear of Destiny–a legendary object that can alter the future. Now running from a secret organization intent on killing those from her bloodline, Cassie must—with the help of some friends—decipher the clues that will lead her to the Spear because her life, and the fate of the world, depend on it.

Christina Diaz Gonzalez has created a fast-paced thrill-ride of a book, rich with riddles and myth, that young readers will not want to put down.

Sounds awesome, right?

Before we get to the big reveal, here’s some information about the author, who has two other wonderful middle grade novels.
