Shelf Candy (5)
Shelf Candy is a weekly meme created by Steph at Five Alarm Book Reviews. Each week I'll feature a book cover I find gorgeous, evocative or interesting in one way or another. For more info on the meme, check out the introduction post here.

Why I chose this cover: Even if the title of the book didn't give you an idea of what it's about, this cover certainly will. I love negative space in anything, and it's used so well here. The black background makes the shattered glass stand out even more, and it's very compelling. I certainly wanted to know just what this book was all about when I first saw it.
Synopsis: Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend, Isaac, alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time when Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn't wake up.
Convinced that his own actions led to his friend's death, Seth is torn between turning his life around...or losing himself completely.
Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he's ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth soon realizes he isn't the only one who needs saving.
