Discussion: LGBT Covers

LGBT Challenge

I love pretty covers. I get sucked in all the time when a book has a particularly eye-catching cover. I saw that for the LGBT Challenge in July it is REWIND Month – a chance to catch up on any discussion topics you may have missed in previous months. I only signed up for this challenge in May (after taking part in LGBT Month in April) so I never got a chance to take part in the cover discussion (which took part in March). So…I am taking part now!

Now, I have waxed lyrical about my favourite LGBT covers when I took part in LGBT Month so I am going to do something different here. Specifically, I am going to look at cover re-designs (and give my opinions on them). Sounds fun right? Awesome! 😀

When the picture tells the story…

Senior year is almost over, and Jamie Peterson has a big problem. Not college—that’s all set. Not prom—he’ll find a date somehow. No, it’s the worst problem of all: he’s fallen for his best friend.

As much as Jamie tries to keep it under wraps, everyone seems to know where his affections lie, and the giggling girls in art class are determined to help Jamie get together with Mason. But Jamie isn’t sure if that’s what he wants—because as much as Jamie would like to come clean to Mason, what if the truth ruins everything? What if there are no more road trips, taco dinners, or movie nights? Does he dare risk a childhood friendship for romance?

This book is about what happens when a picture reveals what we can’t say, when art is truer than life, and how falling in love is easy, except when it’s not. Fan Art explores the joys and pains of friendship, of pressing boundaries, and how facing our worst fears can sometimes lead us to what we want most.
