The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
Release: March 17, 2015 from Dial
Kate Quinn’s mom died unexpectedly last year, leaving Kate grasping. But when the totally unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Moving in with a politically powerful family she never knew she had, joining a presidential campaign in support of a man she barely knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives—this is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, Kate must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option?When I first saw this cover, I could barely believe it was the real, final product that would encase the printed books. I am not saying is not attractive; it is. I love the watercolor sunset overlaid by artfully printed writing. However, this image looks nothing like any other cover I have seen. Instead, it reminds me of something one might see on Tumblr, one of the many images featuring quotes in fancy fonts on top of pretty backgrounds. And this is precisely why I love it. Not only will this cover stand out thanks to its bright colors, but it will stand out thanks to its individuality, the fact that it barely resembles any other YA cover I have ever seen. I cannot wait to see this Internet-esque but clearly professional image in real life.
Set against a backdrop of politics and family conflict, this is a story of personal responsibility, delicious, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.
