Cover Crush: Tiny Infinities by J.H. Diehl

I love book covers! I love walking around Barnes and Noble just looking at all the different covers.  

A good cover will make me pull the book off the shelf!  It's almost like I have a crush on them :)

Today I'm crushin' on:

About the Book:
When Alice's dad moves out, leaving her with her troubled mother, she does the only thing that feels right: she retreats to her family's old Renaissance tent in the backyard, determined to live there until her dad comes home. In an attempt to keep at least one part of her summer from changing, Alice focuses on her quest to swim freestyle fast enough to get on her swim team's record board. But summers contain multitudes, and soon Alice meets an odd new friend, Harriet, whose obsession with the school's science fair is equal only to her conviction that Alice's best stroke is backstroke, not freestyle. Most unexpected of all is an unusual babysitting charge, Piper, who is mute—until Alice hears her speak. A funny and honest middle-grade novel, this sharply observed depiction of family, friendship, and Alice's determination to prove herself—as a babysitter, as a friend, as a daughter, as a person—rings loud and true.

Why I'm crushin':
We have this book in the media center and when it first came it I left it sitting out because it was so pretty.  In real life, it has glittery specks in the dark part towards the top.  Then the green against the dark is so rich and pretty.  I just love it! 


  1. That is a gorgeous cover. I will try to check this one out. Thanks for the post.

  2. Yes, the cover is GREAT, but the words inside are even greater! Read it!
