Unlike the world of the past their future is not so bright; at least for Wren Inigo. She grew up in a world where she has only heard of daisies as a myth and seen atomic bombs by the dozen.

My revamped summary:
Unlike the world of the past their future is not so bright; at least for Wren Inigo. She grew up in a world where she has only heard of daisies as a myth and seen atomic bombs by the dozen. When her State prison was drafted for war, she knew that time was limited. There was so much she had wanted to do; freeing Liberia included. Will she overcome the memories of the past, to journey on to a brighter future? Or will she succumb to the fate the State has layed out for her?

Summary: Katherine Johnson has always been a recluse, and after years of wanting a friend, she . As she trudges on with her sad and dreary life barely surviving, she meets someone who shakes up her world. Someone who bothers to become close to her rather than giving up on any type of relationship with her. She gets to experience the consequences of getting involved with other people, both the good and bad. However, maybe they aren’t who they seem to be…

The concept seems cool, but there could be more information to get me interested. What are Wren’s goals? What problems does she need to overcome? Who is she? This only tells me about the setting, and it might work better if you tell me a little more than that :slight_smile: .

Cool cover btw! It’s kind of unique.

(Heads up: you can’t share links to your story outside of the SYS threads :slight_smile: )

I love the title and the cover: both send out a sort of somber mood.

As for the blurb, there seems to be a sentence missing. The concept seems interesting, though. However, I would like to know a little more about Katherine. How old is she? Has she literally been a recluse, or is she just someone who keeps to herself? In what kind of environment does she live? What kind of person does she meet?

Hope this helps!

Title: Because you’re different
Genre: YA/NA Romance

Blurb:
What if your body doesn’t always do what you want it to do?

For June, this isn’t a question, but a daily reality. As a fourteen-year-old with cerebral palsy, frequently dropping stuff and being stared at by complete strangers is nothing out of the ordinary. Other than that, life is great, until her parents decide to move to California.

With all her friends miles away and nobody there to protect her from boys stealing your lunch, school becomes a lot more complicated than it had been. Then, she befriends Sam Redstone, a shy boy who’d always been invisible to others.

June’s days improve drastically with Sam by her side, and when she meets his older brother Nathan, she finally believes her cousin Valentina might have been right about sexy California guys. Slowly, she and Nathan develop a unique friendship, one that, June finds herself hoping, might someday turn into something more. But as the years go by, she’s starting to think she might never be with him that way, or any other man for that.

Your blurb is so good. You tell us your theme without revealing the plot. :orange_heart:
The title is also :orange_heart::orange_heart::orange_heart:
But I don’t like the cover. The colors look sad and depressed. The thin font is also hard to see when the cover is minimized.

I dunno, this thread does kinda go against the grain . . .

The cover is very simple and I love how you used only two colours. They complement each other fantastically, especially the ‘rust’ feeling on the cover. From the cover alone I get a feeling of aging, maybe a story that takes place in 1960s, but the picture itself is not quite clear, and I understand you went for that. The background is up for the reader’s guessing. It looks like a restaurant to me.

The blurb starts out with a really great line which startles more interest to read on. I love how you introduced June, and once again, the paragraph ends in a good note that makes me wonder what happens in California. This is just my opinion, but in the last paragraph, the first sentence makes me lose a bit of interest due to the cliche and continues on like that until the last sentence, which actually turns out to be very absorbing in a way. You didn’t give away too much information, but kept it interesting enough. I’d read it out of curiosity, although I’m not into romance. Great job with it!

A young bard travels the world in search for stories to fill his poem tome with. He’s a no-name who has been granted a calling by a mermaid; who met a traveller that found out how he will die from the whispers of the dead. He wrote of a King that went against an army of undead to reclaim his lost town and of a Human-Faced Spider Queen who has wiped an entire forest clean, changing the fate of a traveller into meeting her.

This is just the beginning of his journey and he can’t wait to tell you what other stories he has come across!

Lol. I wrote the exact opposite about the cover. :orange_heart: It’s a good thing your opinion differs from mine. @ErinIsobelM can take our thoughts and juggled what fits and what doesn’t.
