Cover Crush: Neighborhood Girls by Jessie Ann Foley

Neighborhood Girls by Jessie Ann Foley is definitely a deserving Cover Crush pick! I love love love this cover! It is dark but beautiful! The color palette is really appealing to me too! Just look at that flower breaking through the concrete in that cityscape. It screams about strenght, struggle, and ultimately growth.  Neighborhood Girls sounds like a book about building up armor in order to survive high school and finding that one friend who can make all the difference in your life. I really have been into contemporary recently and I am adding this one to my  TBR & you can preorder for the November 7th, 2017 release!

Printz Honor winner Jessie Ann Foley, whose debut novel, The Carnival at Bray, was also a Morris Award finalist, is back with a candid coming-of-age story about a girl whose encounters with loss, broken friendships, and newfound faith leave her forever changed.

When Wendy Boychuck’s father, a Chicago cop, was escorted from their property in handcuffs for his shady criminal practices, she knew her life would never be the same. Her father gets a years-long jail sentence, her family falls on hard times, and the whispers around town are impossible to ignore. If that wasn’t bad enough, she gets jumped walking home from a party one night. Wendy quickly realizes that in order to survive her father’s reputation, she’ll have to make one for herself.

Then Wendy meets Kenzie Quintana—a cigarette-smoking, Catholic-school-uniform-skirt-hiking alpha—and she knows that she’s met her savior. Kenzie can provide Wendy with the kind of armor a girl needs when she’s trying to outrun her father’s past. Add two more mean girls to the mix—Sapphire and Emily—and Wendy has found herself in Academy of the Sacred Heart’s most feared and revered clique. Makeover complete.

But complete is far from what Wendy feels. Instead, she faces the highs and lows of a vapid, toxic friendship, the exhaustion that comes with keeping up appearances, and the only loss that could hurt more than losing herself.
