Terrified that her mother, a schizophrenic and an artist, is a mirror that reflects her own future, sixteen-year-old Aura struggles with her overwhelming desires to both chase artistic pursuits and keep madness at bay. As her mother sinks deeper into the darkness of mental illness, the hunger for a creative outlet keeps drawing Aura toward the depths of her own imagination—the shadows of make-believe that she finds frighteningly similar to her mother’s hallucinations. Convinced that creative equals crazy, Aura shuns her art, and her life unravels in the process.

My Thoughts: I think this is a fantastic and beautiful cover. It is eerie and whimsical. Even the title is neat, how it fades. I am pulled in and am left wanting to know this story.

Thats my judgment, Whats yours?

I agree. This cover is beautiful and I love how the title echoes water. I love the really beautiful light blue of the water with the model's dark hair. Great choice!
