Cover Reveal: Gemini by Sonya Mukherjee

I’ve had the pleasure of admiring a great number of wonderfully-designed book covers over the course of my two year career as a book blogger, but I can think of few as beautifully suited to their respective stories as the one I have the immense honour to share with you here today. Sonya Mukherjee’s forthcoming 2016 debut, Gemini, the story of two conjoined sisters who must weigh the importance of their dreams as individuals against the risk inherent in the surgery that has the potential to separate them forever, is a novel that has long intrigued me. You can therefore imagine how delighted and touched I was when Sonya was kind enough to reach out and ask that I help her with her cover reveal. Please read on to learn a little more about Sonya, Gemini, and to enter for a chance to win an advance reader copy of this compelling and thought-provoking novel.

Things you can’t do when you’re permanently attached to your twin sister’s back:
• Snowboard
• Rock climb
• Be ignored by strangers
Kiss a boy (Stupid thing that my sister believes. Are you really letting her write this? – Hailey)

Clara and Hailey love each other, and they’re comfortable in their conjoined bodies. It’s the stares and whispers they could do without.

Hailey’s a pink-haired artist who longs to explore the world and question every limitation. Clara’s an aspiring scientist who would rather stay home, avoid strangers, and study the night sky.

Yet Clara has secret, impossible dreams, like seeing Earth from space, and falling in love with a guy who could actually love her back.

Then telescope-loving Max comes to town, and Clara starts to question her definition of “impossible.”

Soon, both Clara and Hailey are forced to ask: Is it possible to pursue their dreams together? Or should they consider the risky, life-threatening surgery to separate them? And what does it really mean for each sister to be herself?

  1. I would love to go to a children’s hospital and go into each room and give the children something. The children’s hospital here in Iowa is really big as they serve lots of children with different needs and I would love to make their day. With toys, books, makes, stuffed animals, just anything. That is what I would like to do. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. I LOVE this cover! I am also incredibly excited about the book because the premise is just too amazing for words! It’s hands-down one of my most anticipated for 2016!

    I have always dreamt of traveling the world. Also, of writing a book. One of those things is probably more likely to happen than the other 😉 Unless I win the lottery- hey, maybe THAT should be my dream…

  3. Pretty cover, the colours are gorgeous! Something I’d love to do? Work with authors and see the Northern Lights!

    Thanks for sharing these gorgeous cover reveals with us! I’d really appreciate it if you’d share who the giveaways are open to though, as it never says in the giveaway rules. I understand if authors don’t want to ship internationally, but I’m never sure if I can enter. I would love if you include this in future posts 🙂
