It's Monday, what's on the cover?
I thought I was looking at a woman being attacked by butterflies when I saw the final cover of What Happened to Hannah by Mary Kay McComas. Or perhaps the photographer was running by when that picture was taken. I think it's a beautiful cover. It has so much color and life to it. What did happen to Hannah? I'm not sure if the title is a question or a statement. The title character Hannah has returned to town after 20 years. She left an abusive household and never looked back. Her mother and sister are dead, leaving Hannah to care for her niece. It all sounds rather dark, something not reflected on the cover. A review and Q&A with Mary Kay McComas will be posted on February 10. Stay tuned!!
It's a Waverly Life by Maria Murnane comes to me courtesy of Little Bird Publicity. It says the book is a sequel, but I've never read the first book. Hopefully, that won't matter. I think the title character in this book must be living in disarray. The puzzle pieces are scattered about, nothing connecting. Perhaps the title character is still trying to put the pieces back together. Let's see what happens.
