Hello, YABC! Erica George here, and I’m so excited to share with you the exclusive cover reveal for my debut young adult novel, Words Composed of Sea and Sky. I first started writing this book in 2018, but a few of the characters have been with me since 1999 when I was just 13 years old. When I found out that my book was going to be published, I couldn’t believe that all of my author dreams were coming true! Now that I have a cover and physical ARCs, it’s starting to feel real. I hope you love it as much as I do, and good luck if you’re entering the giveaway!
Here it is!

WORDS COMPOSED OF SEA AND SKY
About the Book
Michaela Dunn, living on present day Cape Cod, dreams of getting into an art school, something her family just doesn't understand. When her stepfather refuses to fund a trip for a poetry workshop, Michaela finds the answer in a local contest searching for a poet to write the dedication plaque for a statue honoring Captain Benjamin Churchill, a whaler who died at sea 100 years ago. She struggles to understand why her town venerates Churchill, an almost mythical figure whose name adorns the school team and various tourist traps. When she discovers the 1862 diary of Leta Townsend, however, she gets a glimpse of Churchill that she didn't quite anticipate.
In 1862, Leta Townsend writes poetry under the name Benjamin Churchill, a boy who left for sea to hunt whales. Leta is astonished when Captain Churchill returns after his rumored death. She quickly falls for him. But is she falling for the actual captain or the boy she constructed in her imagination?
