Oh God! This is totally a pass for me. Everything about this cover is everything that I would not find interesting. First off, the title. What does that even mean? Is it suppose to be an oxymoron? I hate cryptic titles (and this is very hypocrite of me to say this, because I like to write things cryptically). Next on my “oh-this-is-so-not-interesting-for-me” is the picture. It screams “summer gone wrong” or “the summer where it seems that all great things happened and I learned a lot from that summer”. Definitely not my cup of tea. I’m guessing this could be a coming of age kind of story, and I generally like stories like that, but the cover is such a pass for me.
What’s it about:
Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.
As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she’s unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she’ll always be trapped in the past.
Okay, I am not far off from my guess. Although I may not be entirely correct about whether or not the accident happened on a Summer day, but it definitely something about an event that goes wrong. Ha! I feel good when I am right. I am also subjectively correct because the story is definitely not my cup of tea. But!! There’s a big but here. But, I might slightly be interested in reading this book, just because I really want to know what the truth about the accident is about. I am such a sucker from secrets emerging to the surface.
