Descripción del libro
A 15 year old boy growing up poor on a farm is a budding thief. His father can't keep a job because of his temper. They fight often. Outsiders arrive to claim property the boy's father just inherited, and shortly later the house burns. All the evidence points to the boy seizing the opportunity to burn the house and ruin his father. Accused and with a track record of thieving and deception, no one believes his denials. But a lesson on integrity from a stranger challenges the boy to prove his innocence, and in doing so, he's given the opportunity to thwart a second attack from the real culprits, thus proving his innocence, selflessness and heroism.

First, if the book's description sparked your creativity and you have your own concept of the perfect cover to demonstrate the book's ideas, go with it. I'm as likely to pick something I didn't think of as what I did. The way I'm imagining the cover is this: Mostly white, and as if the cover itself is half buried under snow. The background of the entire cover is a rural scene in a whiteout. Snow everywhere, so most of the cover is snow, with occasional country scenery like a couple trees poking through for context. Center of the cover is a faded/washed out image of a young man's face, large enough that his eye is able to contain another image of a roaring house fire. If that looks stupid, then the house fire needs to be contained within the boy's face. I am providing an image I bought off shutterstock, but if you're aware of a better, more troubled face, go ahead and use it. I'd like the title on top in a strong, dark, gritty font, possibly borrowing colors from the trees used in the background image, a dark green or brown. Experiment if it looks stupid. In general, I like shadowed/3D letters. Don't know if they'll look right on this cover. I'd like my name at the bottom, in a thinner, rounder font, like the one used in the John Grisham A Time to Kill cover, possibly borrowing colors from the burning house. Last, feel free to experiment with everything and use your skills to make a knockout cover that appeals to both young men and adult readers. The cover should convey grit, action, and redemption.
