Behind-the-scenes secrets could turn deadly for Desmond and Riley

Life in the Heights has never been easy for seventeen-year-old Riley Frost, but when she's publicly dumped and outed at the same time, she becomes an immediate social outcast at her high school. So Riley swears off romance and throws herself into solving the shocking murder of her favorite teacher, Ms. Dunn.

Riley turns to her best friend, budding filmmaker Desmond Brandt, for help. What she doesn't know is that Dez has been secretly directing her life, blackmailing her friends, and hoping his manipulations will make her love him. When his schemes go too far, Dez's web of lies threatens to destroy both of their lives.

Why I love: 

It's just so...creepy. The main character's best friend is a filmmaker, but he's molding her own life by manipulating and blackmailing because he wants her to love him. Creepy and controlling, how nice. With him being a filmmaker, I love the hands even more on the cover. The girl seems to be in a dark alley and I feel like any moment, the hands will suddenly reach out for her. The tagline is also a really nice touch.

Thank you, Cover Snark, for showing me this fantastic cover! 

Do you love this?

  3. Ooo, I love a good thriller/murder mystery, so I have to add this to my list! Thanks for the heads up, for some reason this wasn't on my radar at all. That cover really is awesome. :) I like that it's different from other YAs out there.

  4. I actually found your description more frightening than the cover, you described it very well-makes me really anxious to read the story!

  5. This cover is creepy! But I love how they carried the film-maker aspect to it too, I think that's really cool! Especially how the hand frame focuses on the girl.

  6. They did a great job with this cover. I got the creepy vibe from it before I even read the blurb and your comment. This sounds pretty good.

  7. I would never have known what The Cutting Room Floor was about if I hadn't read the blurb. But I think the cover fits what the book is about perfectly and the tag line makes it sound even more creepy! Thanks for putting this book on my radar Sunny! :)

  9. Woah. How did I not know about this book? The premise sounds chilling and the cover compliments that so creepily. I agree about the tagline being a nice touch as well; so often they can be cheesy, but this one is intriguing.
