COVER REVEAL: Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon + GIVEAWAY!


I am so so SO pleased to exclusively reveal the cover for one of my FAVOURITE books of the year, Mel Darbon's debut novel, Rosie Loves Jack. It's a gorgeous, wondrous, MUST read book told from the viewpoint of this brave girl with Down's syndrome, and how she tackles the world and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. 

Which is why I jumped up in excitement when Usborne asked me if I would like to reveal the cover, because YES! This book is something ALL TEENAGERS and ALL ADULTS need to read because it handles SUCH AN IMPORTANT topic in such a wonderful way. 

So, scroll down to read a note from Mel Darbon herself, get a FIRST look at the cover and ALSO, ENTER A GIVEAWAY FOR ONE OF THE FIRST FINISHED COPIES EVER! (Open International)

Two years ago I walked into the Usborne offices to talk about my novel Rosie Loves Jack and realised immediately that I’d found the right home for my story. The team embraced my character Rosie, who has Down’s syndrome, and my objective to give a voice to someone who deserves to be represented in the pages of a book. Everyone at Usborne supported my intention that we should focus on a person’s abilities and not their disability.

I loved writing Rosie’s voice and aimed to accurately represent the world of someone with Down’s syndrome and what they have to deal with on a daily basis. The challenge was to never lose sight that Rosie is sixteen years old and I wanted to demonstrate the universal nature of her teenage life as she fights for her independence. She must navigate her way through difficult times to reach the boy she loves.

The super-talented Will Steele has perfectly captured the heart of the book with his cover design for Rosie Loves Jack. I am excited by his striking and contemporary interpretation, which reflects that this is a novel that, despite its darker elements, is essentially a love story. I am delighted that Rosie Loves Jack is coming out in September.

Without further ado, please find below the GORGEOUS COVER that I INSTANTLY fell in love with!

Isn't IT SIMPLY WONDERFUL? I'd absolutely love to hear your thoughts down in the comments on what you think of it!
