Cover Love #8

Hosted by Bookshelvers Anonymous


Author: Trish Doller

Publication date: September 24, 2013

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children

Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love--even with someone who seems an improbable choice--is more than just a possibility.

Trish Doller writes incredibly real teens, and this searing story of love, betrayal, and how not to lose your mind will resonate with readers who want their stories gritty and utterly true.

So this cover was just revealed and when I saw it, I had insta-love. I love how the picture is faded and I have a couple ideas of what the yellow dots are. In my mind, they're either: ashes, lights, or stars...but I think that, mostly, they're representation of stars. 

It just seems so pretty and contemporary. I also love when they have those teasers at the top of the cover, as long as they aren't cheesy. 

What do you think of my pick? What's your Cover Love this week?

  1. This is my first time coming across this book! I didn't realise this author had another release. I love the sound of it and the cover is GORGEOUS. If all covers were this pretty, I'd buy every book in the stores. ;)

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. So funny, I pinned that image on Pinterest ages ago--it must be stock photography somewhere! I love it though, the colors, the twinkly, the font--and I'm looking forward to reading it. :)
