Backwards Book #2

Hey, guys! I’ve got another Backwards Book for you today.

If you don’t know how to participate, here are the rules:

  • I create a book cover and post it.
  • You write a summary based on the cover.
  • Post the summary in the comments.
  • If you like your story idea, write it!

Here’s the cover:


Stop reading, scroll straight to the comments, and type up a summary. When you’re done with that, come back up to the post to read my idea!

My summary:

We Were Strangers

A young man keeps popping up in Eden Pike’s life. She sees him at college, at her job, on the bus, skulking outside her apartment. Then one day, he disappears. The only sign that he ever existed is the note and photograph of him that Eden discovers in her mailbox. His last message draws Eden out of her sheltered life and thrusts her into a perilous quest to find him. And, as it turns out, the stranger isn’t the only one went missing . . . someone close to Eden’s heart has vanished as well.

I look forward to reading your summaries!

She meets people who are way more different than her and won’t help her. She doesn’t seem to fit in. With help from a few new friends she learns how to accept different people and gets back home safely. When she gets back home, she realizes everything has changed…

    I love these! I’d really like to try this myself…would you mind if I did something like this? I’d link back to you and everything…:)

    Here’s mine:
    April’s entire existence has been focused on getting good grades, staying in the popular crowd at school, and trying to cope with her parents’ divorce. When her parents’ divorce reaches the school, her group of friends isolate themselves, giving her space and not knowing what to do to help her.
    Feeling utterly alone, April spends her days depressed and heartbroken, with no one to love her. While she’s alone, someone speaks to her, assuring her she isn’t alone and that He loves her. April finds a new friend and Savior whose love never ceases.

    Zara Hummings had a dream of a little boy walking in the middle of the road until a bus crashes into him. While walking to school, Zara sees the same little boy standing on the sidewalk. She shields him away just in time. Years later, she sees the same little boy, only grown up, on a local newspaper, burning a car near the road. Did Zara change fate?

    “We Were Stranger”
    Cleo Ryan isn’t your average girl. Sure, she might look average, and if you met her before The Summer you might have thought she acted average. But one summer Cleo accidentally destroys her town and flees to an unknown land she finds in an abandoned subway station. Together with a newfound friend the two strangers connect with the mysterious creatures in the subway land and bring back her town.

    We were strangers, yet there seemed to be a special bond between us. Smiles shared, glances exchanged, there was a certain knowledge between us. She had never said a word to me, although we had seen each other quite a bit. Strangers, but yet still friends. For a while, she came less and less. I smiled at her more and more, but all she did was look at me sorrowfully. After a while, she didn’t come at all. I wondered, day after day, whatever had happened to her. I wondered whether I’d ever see her again. Would I? One day I found out it all…

    Julianna had never seen him before in the photo albums. Nobody had ever mentioned him – and it just turns out he’s her cousin. And her best friend. Now that they are related, they have to see each other in a new way – a way that might tear them apart.

    I like these a lot! :D Here’s mine:
    Molly has always been outspoken, courageous and optimistic. She likes everyone at school and everyone likes her – except for one boy named Adam. Adam has always been an outsider, different, and alone. He doesn’t socialize or talk to anyone, and he doesn’t like many people.
    One day, years later, when Molly has finished college, Adam shows up at her apartment door with a letter and a picture. The two embark on an mystery filled, action packed adventure involving lies, stolen money, and internationally trained thieves. The mystery is solved after weeks of investigating, and Adam and Molly plan to go back to their regular lives. But, Molly feels something deeper – something more in her heart than just friendship for Adam. Can she stop him before it’s too late, or will Adam leave Molly’s life forever?
    So, how was it? Did you like it? :D

    It all all started when Evette Finch and her friends Yvonne and Atticus go on a trip of a life time, a trip to Paris. But Paris seems strange…especially when nobody, NOBODY can remember you.

    Ooh, did you take that picture? (Well I guess you did, so yeah… XD ) It’s neat! Here’s my summary:
    “We were strangers. Alone, lost. The day we met at that train station, our lives were changed. Forever.” Laine and ‘Lijah are almost complete opposites. The only thing they have in common is the secret that they share, the secret that has brought them together. But are they really strangers? And are they truly as strange as they seem?
    Huh. That was weird. XD I like your summary, Loren!

    When 18 year old June Mclee wakes up with no idea where she’s at or who she is, she has to find it all out for herself. But she doesn’t know where to start. To make things even more complicated, as she goes about she has the constant feeling that she’s being watched. Her and her ‘brother’ -or so he claims to be- are alone in this ‘new’ world. Can she find her way back home? Or is she already where she’s suppose to be?

    We were strangers, Jill and I.
    We were strangers.
    What’s funny, what’s funny is…. we were sisters.

    Not just sisters..

    Jillian and Lillian have been kept apart their whole lives. They aren’t sure why, but strangely enough, they both have magical powers. Little do they know that that is the very reason they were kept apart. Fie melts ice. Water extinguishes fire.

    Hey, Loren! I wanted to let you know that my blog is going private. I have gotten some suspicious followers that make me scared, so I am going private.

    Before I start, just to say I LOVE this idea!
    Here goes:

Everything is perfect, but one day something terrible and unimaginable happens to Dipper and only she knows the truth.

On the way she discovers who she really is and were she really belongs.

    I love these. Here’s mine:

    The sky could not be seen as a layer of smog blocked it from our view. We were crouching next to an abandoned and demolished building A police car’s siren could be heard from the distance and a couple of trees were on fire.
    I panted, trying to empty the smoke from my lungs. Taking deep breaths, I turned to the figure beside me
    He had fair hair and a permanently tan skin. His eyes were brow and there was a light smattering of freckles across his nose. He had a seemingly lanky frame; though I knew the strength he could possess f he time calls for it.
    Who is this boy, you may ask. I don’t know. We were merly strangers.
