Meet Unstoppable Moses!
Moses and his cousin Charlie were best friends, wisecracking pranksters, unstoppable forces of teenage energy—until the night they became accidental arsonists and set in motion a chain of events that left Moses alone, guilt-stricken, and most likely trapped in his dead-end town.
Then Moses gets a lucky break: the chance to volunteer as a camp counselor for week and prove that the incident at the bowling alley should be expunged from his record. And since a criminal record and enrollment at Duke are mutually exclusive, he’s determined to get through his community service and get on with his life. But tragedy seems to follow him wherever he goes, and this time, it might just stop him in his tracks.

The synopsis sounds uniquely good, and the cover is attractive and appropriate to the type of tale it represent, IMHO. Also, everything I hear about the novel is so great, I am confident that the story will provide a rich reading experience! Thanks, Kara S
Your synopsis sounds excellent and would easily attract YA readers, but the cover will likely not have the same impact. The story sounds very interesting. Good luck with your novel.
