A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor is one of those covers that can’t help but catch your eye, and that title! Well that title definitely grabs me & makes me want to read more. This bright beautiful cover captures that tropical feeling and puts the potential reader in the mind space of being stranded on a deserted island. Which is exactly what this book is about; two sisters and a boy end up on an island together. The cover designers really get a high five from me today! I absolutely may have walked right by any other version of this book, but this cover really really stands tall and out. I truly would buy this book just to have it look beautiful on my shelves, but now that it has caught my attention I know I will be reading, A Map for Wrecked Girls, when it releases this August 15th, 2017!

We sat at the edge of the ocean—my sister Henri and I—inches apart but not touching at all. We’d been so sure someone would find us by now.
Emma had always orbited Henri, her fierce, magnetic queen bee of an older sister, and the two had always been best friends. Until something happened that wrecked them.
I’d trusted Henri more than I’d trusted myself. Wherever she told me to go, I’d follow.
Then the unthinkable occurs—a watery nightmare off the dazzling coast. The girls wash up on shore, stranded. Their only companion is Alex, a troubled boy agonizing over his own secrets. Trapped in this gorgeous hell, Emma and Alex fall together as Emma and Henri fall catastrophically apart.
For the first time, I was afraid we’d die on this shore.
To find their way home, the sisters must find their way back to each other. But there’s no map for this—or anything. Can they survive the unearthing of the past and the upheaval of the present?
