Book Blurbs

Although I’m still a long way from publication, I do like to think about things like the blurb that will go on the back cover. Since I’m self-publishing, I have to do the blurb writing myself. I hate writing blurbs because I think they sound cheesy, but lately I’ve been working on the blurb for Leah anyway. The blurb that I wrote for the 1996 edition was one of the many things I didn’t like about the book, so I’m rewriting the blurb from scratch. Here’s my working draft for the blurb — I rather like it:

“Shy and alone, 14-year-old Leah Nells has lived her life in isolation, with only books to keep her company. But when she begins ninth grade, she finds herself thrust into the bewildering social cosmos of high school. And when she falls in love with a boy from her class, she must choose between the girl the world expects her to be and the girl who she is.”
