When I First Saw You, #2

Have you heard of the When I First Saw You meme yet?

Here’s the deal: every week Sailing Through Books and A Bookish Flower choose a new cover. We are tasked with writing a synopsis for this book with the cover and title as our only guide. Then, we get to compare it to the real synopsis and laugh at how off we are… or congratulate yourself on your amazing deduction skills. Mostly the first rather than the second.

Invisible Fault Lines by Kristen-Paige MadoniaGenre: Young Adult

My Best Guess

Teenager Cara James lives with her mom in the bankrupt city of Detroit. Between school, her part-time job hanging posters, and her secret passion as a street artist, Cara has no time for boys – let alone high class boys like Daniel Paige. When Daniel catches Cara graffiti-ing, he threatens to tell the authorities if she doesn’t take him under her wing as an apprentice. Is Cara confusing her passion for creating and teaching art for love or are her feelings for Daniel the real thing?

The actual plot

The Result

I guessed a missing father and was wondering if the cover reflected somewhere in California, but didn’t predict the earthquake (c’mon, how did I not predict that? It’s in the title!) or the mystery aspect.



Better luck next time, right?

  1. Nice try! I did like your blurb. It’s hard to gauge where the story is about form only the cover, sometimes you can tell a few of the themes, but still it’s hard too get a good impression of everything from just the cover. I didn’t even notice at first that Invisible Fault lines was the title.
