ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG Cover Reveal

OHAI MY PRETTIES!
*bounces all over the place*
I know, I should calm down. There is an Antarctic amount of snow outside but I can't even let that bother me because today is the day I get to show y'all my freaking beautiful cover.

A little backstory, shall we?
After Hafsah designed the cover for HEART BREATHS and I loved it so much and I loved her more than I already had, I knew that I wanted her to design the cover for OTGDY. Mind you, the book wasn't even finished when I emailed her asking if she'd be able to make the cover for it. God bless Hafsah, she didn't blink when the email I sent her telling her what I wanted sounded something along the lines of 'it's a cancer book but she's not a stereotypical cancer chick and she hates everyone and also there are lots of tattoos and quality time on a fire escape and maybe I want someone's wrist but I don't really want any people can you do that thanks.'

I am not even exaggerating in the slightest.
This is also why I do not make my own covers.

But Hafsah has the patience of a saint and managed to ask the right questions and pick up the right details from my Pinterest board, which is a magical thing in it of itself.

And then she sent me this cover, and I died dead.

Ready??

I CAN'T EVEN YOU GUYS.
I. CAN'T. EVEN.

The blurb:

The first year of college is supposed to be about parties, parties, and getting the hell out of Texas. Instead, Milcah Daniels is spending her eighteenth year in and out of Houston's hospitals. Her hair is falling out, they’ve cut off her boobs, and if she makes it to nineteen, she’ll consider it a personal miracle.
Breast cancer really has a way of messing with a girl’s social calendar.
When Milcah’s temporarily discharged from the hospital, she’s determined to get a tattoo for every medical procedure she’s had. Her quest leads her to Skin Stories, a new tattoo parlor a block from her apartment. And to it’s infuriatingly sexy artist, Callum Scott.
Callum is everything Milcah wants, and everything she shouldn’t have now. A new relationship when the official prognosis is one to five years is a terrible idea. But Callum doesn’t know about the breast cancer, and Milcah’s not running to tell him. 
But when the doctor says things are actually looking positive, her entire life turns upside down. How is she supposed to start living again when she’s finally learned to accept her death?
