DAMSELFLY by Jennie Bates Bozic Cover Reveal and Giveaway

When Jennie reached out for a cover reveal, I read the synopsis for her debut, DAMSELFLY, and couldn’t stop thinking about the futuristic tale. It sounds like something I would pick up without a blink, and I just had to say yes! First, here’s what DAMSELFLY’s about. Then, check out the fun cover and enter to win one of four ARCs!

In 2065, the Lilliput Project created Lina – the first six-inch-tall winged girl – as the solution to a worldwide energy and food crisis. Isolated in a compound amidst the forests of Denmark, Lina has grown up aware of only one purpose: learn how to survive in a world filled with hawks, bumblebees, and loneliness. However, on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, she discovers that she’s not the only teenager her size. Six ‘Toms’ were created shortly after Lina, and now her creators need to prove to the world that tiny people are the next logical step in human evolution. In other words, they need to prove that reproduction is possible.

Um. No thanks. Lina’s already fallen in love with a boy she met online named Jack. Only he has no idea that thumbelina1847 could literally fit inside his heart.

When her creators threaten to hurt Jack unless she chooses a husband from among the ‘Toms’, Lina agrees to star in a reality TV series. Once the episodes begin to air, the secret of her size is out. Cut off from any contact with the outside world, Lina assumes Jack is no longer interested. After all, what guy would want to date a girl he can’t even kiss?

Slowly, very slowly, she befriends the six young men who see her as their only ticket to happiness. Perhaps she can make just one guy’s dream of love and companionship come true. But her creators have a few more twists in store for her that she never thought possible.

She’s not the only one playing to the cameras.

    Wow this sounds completely unique. I really like the cover even if the title font imo is a bit small. Of course the cover is blown up so that may be why. I'll definitely be adding this one to the ole TBR. Thanks for sharing!
