I’m so excited to finally be able to share the book cover for The Summer I Wasn’t Me, which will be out in bookstores this April! I love the main character of this book so much, and I can’t wait for her story to be out there in the world.
Here’s a tiny plot description from the Sourcebooks sales catalog:
You are on the road to truth. Help is on the way.
The road signs leading to New Horizons summer camp promise a new life for sixteen-year-old Lexi. Ever since her mom found out she was in love with a girl, her broken family has been pulled even further apart. But Lexi swears she can change.
Denying her feelings is harder than Lexi thinks. And when she falls heads over heels for one of her fellow campers, Lexi will have to risk her mother’s approval for the one person who might love her no matter what.
So, without further ado…
I think the Sourcebooks design team did an awesome job with this cover. The image is compelling yet not too spoilery, and I really hope it will make potential readers stop and take a second look. I also LOVE the eye-catching colors, and the fact that the emotional heartbreak of the story is represented right there on the cover. Huge thanks to my editor Leah Hultenschmidt and the entire design team for listening to my ideas and feedback on the cover design and working so hard to make sure we found a cover image that we’re all super happy with!
AND I just discovered the book is already available for pre-order on Amazon! No cover image or back cover description there yet, but it’s still early days…
What do you think of the cover? I hope you like it as much as I do!
