Hello sunshines! 🔆 It’s been SO long since I’ve shared a Captivating Cover! I think it’s partially because of all the giveaway/promo posts I’ve been doing. But besides that, today I am here to share another cover in our book community that is just a pure beauty. As always, feel free to recommend some in the comments! (:
Captivating Covers is a meme created by me — @JBelkBooks. I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes I buy books just because of the cover. So, I created this meme to share my findings!
Once a week, you can showcase ‘captivating’ book covers that you came across! They do not have to be purchased by you and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, libraries, online, etc. Have fun with this and make sure to comment a link below to your own Captivating Covers!
💭 IMAGINE THIS: A watercolor-ish cover with such a great color scheme. A cover that makes you think of something…magical? Almost like a dream. Two lifestyles coming together in one cover — urban & rural. Just to think that the cover has SO much to do with the synopsis of the book itself (my favorite type of covers)! What book am I referring to?

Synopsis from Goodreads:
All We Have Left by Wendy Mills
“A haunting and heart-wrenching story of two girls, two time periods, and the one event that changed their lives—and the world—forever.
Sixteen-year-old Jesse is used to living with the echoes of the past. Her older brother died in the September 11th attacks, and her dad has filled their home with anger and grief. When Jesse gets caught up with the wrong crowd, one momentary hate-fueled decision turns her life upside down. The only way to make amends is to face the past, starting Jesse on a journey that will reveal the truth about how her brother died.
In 2001, sixteen-year-old Alia is proud to be Muslim… it’s being a teenager that she finds difficult. After being grounded for a stupid mistake, Alia is determined to show her parents that that they must respect her choices. She’ll start by confronting her father at his office in downtown Manhattan, putting Alia in danger she never could have imagined. When the planes collide into the Twin Towers Alia is trapped inside one of the buildings. In the final hours she meets a boy who will change everything for her as the flames rage around them . . .
Interweaving stories past and present, full of heartbreak and hope, two girls come of age in an instant, learning that both hate and love have the power to reverberate into the future and beyond.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but this novel sounds AWESOME. Not only are there MC’s of color, but it sounds like it’s going to be a good balance between heartbreak and coming-of-age. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one! ❤
