Hey guys! Today I’m going to be revealing yet another cover! And you don’t even know, but you might probably know, that I’m legit excited for this book. It’s by Cassie Shine — author of Harp’s Song which I wrote a glowing review on. So are y’all ready to see the beauty that is this cover? Yours Truly by Cassie Shine
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Series: Pen Pal #1
Sixteen-year-old Laia Hawkins wonders what in the heck she’s supposed to say to Adrian Gutierrez, the name of her new pen pal—thanks to her World History teacher. How could Adrian, from Seville, Spain, possibly relate to Laia and her quiet life in a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri?
But, as Adrian and Laia write to each other, friendship blossoms and secrets emerge. Laia finds comfort in Adrian’s letters confessing truths she’s kept hidden—even from those closest to her—like how lost she’s felt since her father’s death, her anxiety about graduation, and her fears about leaving her family and two best friends. Adrian, determined to help Laia come out of her shell and face her fears, devises a series of challenges that she must complete and document in her letters to him. And, what started as an innocent game of twenty questions becomes more.
Now isn’t that gorgeous? It just screams adorable contemporary YA over here and it makes me all the more excited to read it! You see, I’ve always wanted a pen pal ever since I was a little kid. I would scour the net for kids my age who want to entertain this cheeky Filipino boy. To cut the long story short, my parents didn’t allow me. Sad story, I know.
