While I was working.

I don’t know anything about this series.  I’ve never read Harlan Coben before but this cover has got me interested.  I stumbled it while I was at work today and  I couldn’t help but notice the girl.

She’s not your usual YA cover girl.  She’s not stick thin or dressed in a fancy dress. She’s normal.  I like it.  It’s nice to see girls like me represented in the genre.  Let’s hope it becomes a trend.

Here’s the description from Goodreads if anyone else is interested.

It’s been eight months since Mickey Bolitar witnessed the shocking, tragic death of his father. Eight months of lies, dark secrets, and unanswered questions. While he desperately wants answers, Mickey’s sophomore year of high school brings on a whole new set of troubles. Spoon is in the hospital, Rachel won’t tell him where he stands, his basketball teammates hate him… and then there’s Ema’s surprise announcement: She has an online boyfriend, and he’s vanished

  1. Hmm. That sounds like it might be fun. I also like that it has a male protagonist. It’s possible that I just tend towards books with lady protagonists but I feel like we’ve seen a lot of Strong Women Leads in the past couple of years (Katniss, Tris, that angel person in the Cynthia Hand books.;0))
