Here it is, you guys, the thing that makes this thing so so so much realer. THE COVER for Pieces of Sky. It is here and I am showing it to you and I’ll just get out of the way so you can SEE IT.
Isn’t it just amazing?!! The illustration is by Paula Bonet and the hand lettering is by Bianca Cash. I got chills the first time I saw the illustration, the girl is exactly Lucy. And the way her face is just above the water and how there’s no sky and ugh, it’s all just so so perfect. Plus, check out that beautiful blurb from Vikki Wakefield!
And speaking of blurbs, here’s what’s happening on the back.
Lucy’s life was going as smoothly as any teenager’s could. She was in the local swimming club, and loved it; she lived with her parents and her brother, Cam, in the small coastal town she’d known all her life. She had friends, she had goals – she had a life. Now Cam is dead, her parents might as well be – and Lucy can’t bear to get back in the pool. All she has to look forward to now is a big pile of going-nowhere.
Drawn to Steffi, her wild ex-best-friend who reminds Lucy of her mysterious, unpredictable brother, and the quiet, music-obsessed Evan, the new boy in town, Lucy starts asking questions. Why did Cam die? Was it an accident or suicide? But as Lucy hunts for answers she discovers much more than she expects. About Cam. About her family. About herself.
