Harley in the Sky by Akemi Dawn Bowman- COVER REVEAL
I’m a huge fan of Akemi Dawn Bowman and loved her first two contemporary books thanks to their stunning prose and sensitive explorations of difficult subject matters. You can read my reviews of Starfish here and Summer Bird Blue here if you’d like to hear me gushing about both books.
I was thrilled to be accepted onto the street team for Harley in the Sky, due to be released March 2020 in the US. I was lucky enough to see the cover early but it’s now been publicly released over at Paste Magazine so I can’t wait to share it here too.
🎪 Cover Reveal! 🎪
Isn’t it gorgeous?! The cover alone would make me buy this book but, if you’re still unsure, check out the description from the publisher below.
🎪 What’s the book about? 🎪
Harley Milano has dreamed of being a trapeze artist for as long as she can remember. With parents who run a famous circus in Las Vegas, she spends almost every night in the big top watching their lead aerialist perform, wishing with all her soul that she could be up there herself one day.
After a huge fight with her parents, who continue to insist she go to school instead, Harley leaves home, betrays her family and joins the rival traveling circus Maison du Mystère. There, she is thrust into a world that is both brutal and beautiful, where she learns the value of hard work, passion and collaboration. But at the same time, Harley must come to terms with the truth of her family and her past—and reckon with the sacrifices she made and the people she hurt in order to follow her dreams.
✨🎪 Aesthetic Boards 🎪✨
