1) Leah Bobet is CANADIAN! What book loving Canadian would ever pass up the chance to support one of our own in a genre that we love... eh?
2) The CN Tower is featured on the absolutely gorgeous cover.
3) Though it is categorized as YA, Sue assured me that the literary tone of the book reads almost adult. A "crossover" title like this has a widely scoped audience and will resonate with teens and adults alike.
4) It is blurbed by Emma Donoghue!
5) Sue's enthusiasm was undeniable. I could not listen to that lady speak about this book with such passion and NOT pick up a copy.
Yes, covers and plot lines sell books, but if you really want to get excited about something, let a book lover tell you about it!
I also received a few fabulous ARC's this week (eeeek!) but I am going to save that for a vlog in a few weeks! Hope you all had a fabulous book week!
