Cover Crush: Live Through This

I love book covers.  Love love love them! I've been known to drag my sister around Barnes and Noble and show her all the covers I like. I'll hunt down certain students in the morning because I know they'll love a cover as much as me.  I really think I develop a crush on certain covers!

Today I'm crushing on:

I absolutely love this cover! I love covers that have emotion coming off of them, and I completely feel that from this cover.  You can feel the sadness and almost an emptiness in the girl.

Sometimes hiding the truth requires more than a lie . . . 
From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her from the annoying drama. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a stepdad and mom who would stop at nothing to keep her and her siblings happy and safe. 
But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now, Coley and Reece are getting closer, and as Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.
Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect in this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel


  1. I think I'd appreciate this one a whole lot more if the title words were so large. They distract from the image, in my opinion. But, I do think it emits the overwhelming sadness you speak too.

  2. I love it too. It reminds me of the paperback for The Girl Who Chased the Moon.
