Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. Things We Couldn't Say by Jay Coles is a new YA contemporary fiction that follows a young man trying to navigate love in all its vagueness, hoping at the other end he'll be able to figure out who he is and who he should be. There are no easy answers in love and life and Things We Couldn't Say sounds like it will take readers on an emotionally heartfelt journey.
Synopsis of Things We Couldn't Say from Goodreads:
There's always been a hole in Gio's life. Not because he's into both guys and girls. Not because his father has some drinking issues. Not because his friends are always bringing him their drama. No, the hole in Gio's life takes the shape of his birth mom, who left Gio, his brother, and his father when Gio was nine years old. For eight years, he never heard a word from her . . . and now, just as he's started to get his life together, she's back.
It's hard for Gio to know what to do. Can he forgive her like she wants to be forgiven? Or should he tell her she lost her chance to be in his life? Complicating things further, Gio's started to hang out with David, a new guy on the basketball team. Are they friends? More than friends? At first, Gio's not sure . . . especially because he's not sure what he wants from anyone right now.
