WELL ISN’T THIS AN EXCITING BONUS SATURDAY POST?!
Today, I have the ABSOLUTE JOY of revealing, exclusively, the cover for one of my most anticipated MG books of 2019 – A Pocketful of Stars by Aisha Bushby. What a cracking way to start 2019!
A Pocketful of Stars promises to be something pretty incredible! Check out the blurb below and scroll down for the cover!
Can piecing together the past help you change the present?
When I next open my eyes, I’m back… in front of the house again.
It’s night time. The stars wave hello, like they’ve been expecting me.
The door of the house, Mum’s house, is wide open, like it expects me too.
This time, I go inside…
Safiya and her mum have never seen eye to eye. Her mum doesn’t understand Safiya’s love of gaming and Safiya doesn’t think they have anything in common. As Safiya struggles to fit in at school she wonders if her mum wishes she was more like her confident best friend Elle. But then her mum falls into a coma and, when Safiya waits by her bedside, she finds herself in a strange alternative world that looks a bit like one of her games. And there’s a rebellious teenage girl, with a secret, who looks suspiciously familiar…
A Pocketful of Stars is a story about family, friendship and finding out who you are… with a sprinkling of magic.
I mean, WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO READ THAT? MAGIC? FRIENDSHIP? FAMILY? GAMING? GIRLS WHO GAME? WINNING…
So yes, I know, get on with the cover reveal… I’m just keeping you all on your toes!
DEAR LORD IN THE HEAVENS LOOK AT IT!
THIS IS 100% GORGEOUS.
Keep your eyes peeled for A Pocketful of Stars, released on August 8th (I know, SO FAR AWAY) with Egmont UK.
ALSO, check out a post next week where I gave my class the title and the blurb and asked them to design a cover for the book! We had so much fun doing it!
Massive massive thank you to Aisha and Egmont for asking me to be part of this cover reveal, I couldn’t be happier and more excited to be involved.
Do you love the cover as much as I do?
Are you excited for A Pocketful of Stars?
