Fallen for Covers is a weekly meme hosted by Fallen Angels YA Book Blog every Sunday. This is when we cover whores (me, totally) get to share our obsession with cover art with a little gushing over a particular book.
::mine for the week::
Eva’s life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination—an echo. Made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, she is expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her “other”, if she ever died. Eva studies what Amarra does, what she eats, what it’s like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.
But fifteen years of studying never prepared her for this.
Now she must abandon everything she’s ever known—the guardians who raised her, the boy she’s forbidden to love—to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive.
What Eva finds is a grief-stricken family; parents unsure how to handle this echo they thought they wanted; and Ray, who knew every detail, every contour of Amarra. And when Eva is unexpectedly dealt a fatal blow that will change her existence forever, she is forced to choose: Stay and live out her years as a copy or leave and risk it all for the freedom to be an original. To be Eva.
From debut novelist Sangu Mandanna comes the dazzling story of a girl who was always told what she had to be—until she found the strength to decide for herself.
**whew** That synopsis gives me goosebumps. And that cover... I don't know what it is, but I love it! The shadow of a girl filled with obstacle after obstacle ~ that's what I see. The color scheme is awesome too ~ very dark, but the gold hues add a glimmer of hope. Can't wait to have this little beauty on my shelf :).
And because I'm also mildly obsessed with trailers, here, for your viewing pleasure, is the book trailer for The Lost Girl.
What covers are you lovin' this week?
Happy Reading Everyone :)
