Cover Crush: Notes From a Ghost Town

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:

This cover caught my attention immediately.  And to be honest I can't explain why!!  There's just something about it - her in the water seemingly hugging someone, but you know she isn't because we've all done that fake kiss/hug before.  Then the title just really makes me curious.  I don't know why, but I love it!! Sorry but I can't give you more than that.

They say first love never dies...

From critically acclaimed author Kate Ellison comes a heartbreaking mystery of mental illness, unspoken love, and murder. When sixteen-year-old artist Olivia Tithe is visited by the ghost of her first love, Lucas Stern, it's only through scattered images and notes left behind that she can unravel the mystery of his death. 

There's a catch: Olivia has gone colorblind, and there's a good chance she's losing her mind completely--just like her mother did. How else to explain seeing (and falling in love all over again with) someone who isn't really there?

With the murder trial looming just nine days away, Olivia must follow her heart to the truth, no matter how painful. It's the only way she can save herself.


  1. Certainly sounds intriguing, Jill. And that cover is definitely attractive.
