First, let me be honest, aspects of the cover aren't usually my type of thing. BUT then I read the synopsis and BAM! I wanted to reveal this cover because I think it's a really interesting book, at least judging from the synopsis. (Also, there are aspects of this cover that I LOVE. You'll probably agree with me on some of those aspects.)
Before I reveal the cover, here's that synopsis I mentioned. Maybe it's your thing, maybe it's not. It's probably my thing though. xD
When Cora’s mother whisks the family away for the summer, Cora must decide between forging her future in the glimmering world of second homes where her parents belong, or getting lost in the bewitching world of the locals and the mystery surrounding a lonely old woman who claims to be a selkie creature—and who probably needs Cora more than anyone else.
Through the fantastical tales and anguished stories of the batty Mrs. O’Leary, as well as the company of a particularly gorgeous local boy called Ronan, Cora finds an escape from the reality of planning her life after high school. But will it come at the cost of alienating Cora’s mother, who struggles with her own tragic memories?
As the summer wanes, it becomes apparent that Ronan just may hold the answer to Mrs. O’Leary’s tragic past—and Cora’s future.
Now, without further ado...THE COVER.
I love the font and how it connects the L in Learning to the S in Swim. Looks awesome, doesn't it? Also, that little sparkle is such a nice extra touch! And it looks cute and fun (and possibly feels-y because all seemingly cute and fun books are feels inducing). :D
Thanks to Annie Cosby for asking me to be part of this cover reveal! I hope you all like the cover and check out the book!
