Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Rome Reframed by Amy Bearce,

releasing 2/2/2021 from Jolly Fish Press!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

Hi YABC!  I’m so excited to be back with you to share the cover of Rome Reframed,  Book 2 in the Wish & Wander series with Jolly Fish Press. In Rome Reframed, the main character,  Lucas, has to hop through Rome’s most famous sights—and unintentionally hops back and forth through time while he’s at it.  I wasn’t sure how the cover could match book 1 in the series while honoring the unique story of the non-sequel book 2, but the amazing Sarah Taplin went above and beyond my wildest hopes.  She created a stunning, unique cover that beautifully captures the heart of Rome Reframed.

I absolutely love the jewel-toned overlapping Roman landmarks, jumbled together with those great kaleidoscopic colors. Together, they create a sense of motion and a whimsical mood that suits the story perfectly, while still keeping the city easily recognizable without a traditional skyline. The cover is fun as well as beautiful, which Lucas would definitely appreciate. I was thrilled when I saw the final product. I hope y’all love the cover for Rome Reframed as much as I do.  Thanks for celebrating with me!

About the Book

Lucas Duran has been on the trip of a lifetime—six months traveling through Europe with his parents and two younger brothers. That is, the trip of a lifetime for someone else. Lucas wants nothing more than to be home in Austin, Texas,with his friends, and it shows in his schoolwork that he’s been emailing to his teachers. He can't wait to get out of Rome, the last stop on their trip.

When his teachers give him an ultimatum—either turn in a phenomenal last project or you’ll fail the eighth grade—Lucas is going to have to decide whether to give up or to give in to the mystery of Rome. And after a cryptic palm reader hands him a weird-looking coin to throw in the Trevi Fountain, Lucas finds himself transported to ancient Rome at each new tourist destination. As his hops back through time become more personal, it seems the magic of Rome is determined to help Lucas gain more than an A+ project, too.  Can he fix his future before his time in the past is over?
