Favourite Cover Friday
This week my favourite cover is:
I like this cover for multiple reasons.
First, it’s snowing. I’ve never seen it snow for real but I’ve always thought it looked really pretty. Second, the trees look haunting yet they have this quality of beauty to them, I think the way they have no leaves and the branches just go everywhere makes them look really interesting. And third, the girl. Her reflection in the icy water is a nice touch. All of those things drew me to this cover.
Just from the cover you can tell that this story is a dark story. The dark clouds look ominous. The whole cover looks ominous. The font even looks scary.
Once again this is a book that I have no interest in reading. But I do like the cover. So here’s the summary:
Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?
Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?
For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.
