It’s cover reveal time!
I’m so thrilled to share the cover for my sophomore novel, MY SECOND IMPRESSION OF YOU. From the moment my editor at Bloomsbury shared the first concept sketches from artist Jacqueline Li, I was in love! (And you should totally go check out her other work on her site, www.jacqln-li.com.)
I’d also like to thank cover designer Jeanette Levy, my editor Allison Moore, and my agent Elizabeth Bewley for all of their contributions to this process.
So, without further ado, the cover!
Isn’t it gorgeous???
As a reminder, here’s the description for the book.
A heartfelt story about a girl who thinks she knows everything about love — until she relives a day and discovers she had it all wrong.
Sixteen-year-old Maggie is having the worst day ever. Her perfect boyfriend, Theo, breaks up with her, and then she literally breaks a leg (well, foot), preventing her from starring in the school play. When she receives a text offering her the chance to relive her best day ever – the day she and Theo met – she decides to take the leap. Everything would be better if she could figure out how to win him back. Only, there’s a catch. She doesn’t just relive the day, she gets everyone else’s perspectives, too. The information – not only about Theo, but her family, her best friend, and even Theo’s obnoxious buddy Carson (who is suddenly… nice?) – is more than she bargained for.
As she learns about all the minor details – and major ones – she missed the first time around, she finds herself transported back to reality with a completely new perspective and a big opportunity to decide how to move forward on her own terms.
Maggie is in the center, and if you look closely, you can see her thespian mask necklace. Plus, there’s the hint of her phone having some sort of extra power. Theo is on the left, appropriately standing in front of a Skee ball game, as a key scene takes place there on the day they first met. And Carson is on the right, at the coffee shop where everything starts changing for Maggie.
