I'm so thrilled to have been a (teeny tiny) participant early on in this book's journey and so excited to still be part of things- this time hosting Lee's cover reveal.
How adorable is this cover?
Here's a bit more about the book (and then read on for Lee's take on the cover):
And here's what Lee has to say:
I have a lot of favorite things about this cover, but the biggest one is how closely it’s tied into the book. Everything from the color scheme—in St. Edith’s actual school colors -- to the fact that a movie marquee pointing at Jeremy is directly related to the story.
I also adore the hand drawn fonts for the title and my name that were created by the artist Paul Hoppe. And you can’t see it here, but the school and the girls continue around the back cover too.
I actually had an idea in mind for what a cover might look like but I wanted to keep an open mind, and I’m glad I did, because this cover is way more unique and interesting than anything I would have come up with myself.
The Last Boy at St. Edith's is available for pre-order and can also be ordered directly from your indie bookstore. Trust me, you want it.
