As if being seventeen and in the closet isn’t enough of a disaster, imagine having troublesome sisters, a secret identity and daddy issues thrown into the mix.
Jo & Miles first met each other during their eighth grade, formal dance and Jo has been oblivious to the fact that Miles has had a massive crush on him ever since. Four years later, at the start of their senior year of high school, Miles is dating Jo’s sister (Wait, what? I know right) and comes to create a secret identity to pursue him. As we all know, secrets can only stay so for so long before dots start connecting and rumors slowly turn into the ugly truth.
Told from a dual-perspective, experience the lives of two, internally conflicted boys as they realize that every single encounter should be accounted for, because you’ll never know when that one moment that matters most, will occur.
I'm aiming for the age group of 13-19, primarily the LGBT+ community. Of course, I would like any and everyone to read it but I think that's the ages & group that would most likely take from my book.

I like the simplicity and the splash of color.
It's artsy and modern, I love it.
I like the real life objects.
This was a mock design I did. Way too simple than what I'd like but I guess something along the lines of this? Simple yet cutesy?
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
The two font styles I had in the book are Verdana & Vijaya. And there is several points in the book where "handwriting" is involved between the two main characters and those fonts are Eras Light ITC and Kristen ITC. If you want to somehow incorporate that? Just extra detail, I have no strict desire to have that be a part of the design.
