Descripción del libro
Back Cover/Blurb: Sarah has a secret-no one else knows she was raised by a mother with an untreated mental health condition. At a young age, a terrifying fear developed inside of Sarah that she and her mother could someday end up on the streets. Feeling like the only little girl in the world with a mother like hers, Sarah has nobody she can relate to. When Sarah goes to college, she starts to notice similarities between her mother and people on the street who hang out near her campus. She starts to ask herself Why do homeless people remind me of my mother? If they ended up on the street, could that happen to my mother too? For her college internship, Sarah decides to pursue a writing position at a nonprofit for homeless people. She sits and visits with fellow human beings without homes, listening to their stories and feeling their pain, as an unsettling recognition dwells inside Sarah that this could have been her life too. I Am Human Too is an insightful, thought-provoking journey of how 16 homeless individuals ended up on the street. Putting her journalism skills to use, Sarah writes with gut-wrenching honesty, revealing how she came to understand her mother’s fragile mental state by way of the most overlooked group of people in society, the homeless community.

* BOOK COVER Vision AT LINK HERE: https://www.pinterest.com/sarahmmurphree/book-cover-vision/ * In addition to the Pinterest link, PLEASE FIND 4 PHOTO ATTACHMENTS Below! I envision the book to have a similar vibe/feeling to ONE of these 4 IMAGES! * IF you CHOOSE to put a HOMELESS WOMAN on the cover, PLEASE USE the image of the homeless woman ATTACHED! However, I am NOT SOLD on this woman on the cover. I LOVE the idea of a homeless woman's hands holding a sign with the title on it with/or/and maybe a flower as some sort of inspiration that HOPE is not lost although they lost their home. *This is not a rainbows and butterflies book so I don't want pretty fonts, cursive letter or bright colors. I want bolder and darker colors, think grays, reds, blacks, possibly darker greens/blues. * There will also be a small sticker on every book that says "This Book Feeds People" as a portion of each book sale will go directly back to feed the homeless people. With this said, I imagine a memorable book cover that sits with you and has an impact.
Lo que debe evitarse
*The book has a very similar style to the book "Humans Of New York" in the sense that next to each homeless person's story is a colored, portrait of them to go with it, but I am NOT A FAN of that book cover so please don't dive to deep into that book cover for reference. I am only informing you of this so you know that this book has 16 portraits inside of it. * AVOID - things that are too sweet, soft, playful, and girly. * AVOID - no men/males on cover, it's a mother and daughter story at the core, but I don't want a feminine cover. I hope this makes sense!
