Writing, You Will Never Be Him

So What’s This Book About?

Trying to get people amped-up about a book that’s not out yet by an author who’s never published a book before is quite the task.

Simply putting the title out publicly a few months ago was terrifying, and now I’m moving on to the cover blurb.

I’ve written dozens of variations, shared with two critique groups, and stared at it on the computer screen for hours. I still don’t think it perfect and probably never will, but I have to have one.

So without further ado, here is my current in the works blurb:

You Will Never Be Him
When Chelsea Thames’ family moves the summer before her senior year, her life is turned upside down. No more small town living, no more quiet social life, no more Roger. In an effort to move on from all she’s ever known, Chelsea creates a whole new persona with one goal: survive high school. Her plan unfolds surprisingly well as she scores Garrett Murphy, star football player, as a rebound boyfriend and takes the school by storm. She thinks she has it all figured out until her heart gets pulled in yet another direction, and life becomes an impossible balancing act between her new image and her true self.

Let me know what you think!

  • If you enjoy young adult novels would this be a book you would open?
  • If you are one of my beta readers and know the story, does this sum it up well?
