It’s Live! Cover Reveal: A FEELING LIKE HOME by Haleigh Wenger + Giveaway (International)
We're so excited to celebrate the cover reveal for
A Feeling Like Home by Haleigh Wenger,
releasing 8/3/2021 from Sword and Silk Books!
Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:
Hi YABC! Thanks so much for stopping by for the cover reveal of my novel, A FEELING LIKE HOME. My publisher, Sword and Silk Books, has worked so hard to make this a reality, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the end result! The cover artist, Lucy Rhodes, used her amazing skills to bring to life one of my favorite scenes from the book. We have the Texas wildflowers, Texas Hill Country hills rolling in the background, and the delicious colors of a late summer sunset. She couldn't have captured it better in a million years! This book means so much to me because it's not only a sweet love story and coming-of-age, but it also focuses on chronic illness. Though my main character looks pretty happy on this cover, she gets put through it before she's able to find peace with herself and her body's struggles. I think it's a perfect reminder that life is full of ups and downs and that we can't always see what is going on in the inside (alternatively, we can't always judge a book by its cover! ha!) I hope you all enjoy ogling this cover as much as I have and consider picking up a copy when A FEELING LIKE HOME releases this August!
Here it is!

About the Book
Sixteen-year-old Paige Williams can’t stop self-sabotaging.
Not when her dad gets sick, not when her relationship implodes, not even when her parents send her to another-freaking-state for the summer to live with her sister. Paige just wants to have fun, spray paint a few walls, and block out everything stressful, including her growing concern that she might be sick as well. To make things worse, her parents threaten her with boarding school in the fall if she can’t prove she’s changed her bad habits.
Paige’s parents sign her up for a rebuilding project in Texas where her sister lives. Meanwhile, Paige reluctantly befriends her sister’s straight-laced teenage neighbor, Joey, who is a frequent guest. He’s so different from her, but Paige realizes that may not be a bad thing, especially since being around Joey curbs her urge to vandalize and ignore the rules. He even makes her forget about the debilitating stomach cramps she struggles to hide.
Just as Paige begins to feel settled in Texas, her dad’s worsening Crohn’s disease brings her home to Seattle. When her own health fails her, she has the choice of staying at home and receiving care. Or, she could go back to Texas and prove for once and for all that she’s more than her mistakes and more than a disease. Torn between two worlds and two versions of herself, Paige must decide where, and with whom, she truly feels at home.
