“All Chelsea wants to do this summer is hang out with her best friend, hone her talents as an ice cream connoisseur, and finally get over Ezra, the boy who broke her heart. But when Chelsea shows up for her summer job at Essex Historical Colonial Village (yes, really), it turns out Ezra’s working there too. Which makes moving on and forgetting Ezra a lot more complicated…even when Chelsea starts falling for someone new.
Maybe Chelsea should have known better than to think that a historical reenactment village could help her escape her past. But with Ezra all too present, and her new crush seeming all too off limits, all Chelsea knows is that she’s got a lot to figure out about love. Because those who don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it….”
Past Perfect by Leila Sales has been on my To-Read list ever since it came out and though I still need to see if I love the story, I sure do love the cover.
I adore rainy days, so I was delighted to see rain on the cover. Okay, so it’s a chalk drawing of rain, but still. Other than this book, I haven’t seen any Young Adult or Middle Grade books with covers that have rain (Have you? Please comment if you have!). I also love the pretty green raincoat the girl on the cover’s wearing (note to self: find a raincoat like that for me), the daisy in her hair, and her posing as if she’s going to catch raindrops on her tongue. All in all, I think it’s a really cute cover. If you’ve read Past Perfect, tell me what you thought of it!
What book cover do you love?
