Something wonderful happened to me this blog tour, I was introduced to and fell in love with Juniper Lemon.  Who is Juniper and what is her happiness index? Well let’s not waste anymore time and let me introduce you!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

5.30 Julie Happiness Index

It’s been sixty-five days since the accident that killed Juniper’s sister, and ripped Juniper’s world apart.

Then she finds the love letter: written by Camilla on the day of the accident, addressed mysteriously to “You,” but never sent. Desperate to learn You’s identity and deliver the message, Juniper starts to investigate.

Until she loses something. A card from her Happiness Index: a ritual started by sunny Camie for logging positives each day. It’s what’s been holding Juniper together since her death – but a lost card only widens the hole she left behind. And this particular card contains Juniper’s own dark secret: a memory she can’t let anyone else find out.

The search for You and her card take Juniper to even less expected places, and as she connects with those whose secrets she upturns in the effort, she may just find the means to make peace with her own.

This is a smart, funny, poignant book guaranteed to make you laugh and cry – and maybe even take notes.

BOOK COVER INSPIRED PHOTO SHOOT

We were tasked with re-creating the book cover. So, I set out to Google “how to make your own confetti.” No lie, until this moment of my life, I DID NOT KNOW HOW (so you’re welcome for providing you the link).  I grabbed some colorful tissue paper, cut it up (who knew it would be so easy?) and invited Ann-Eliza over for some wine and photography fun.  While below is our final product, I will add that we took dozens and dozens of shots to get one where there was (1) any confetti in it, (2) we both didn’t look hideous (or afraid of the confetti or like we were trying to eat it) and (3) confetti wasn’t covering our faces. Out of over 100 shots, below is the ONLY ONE that met these standards.  So, without further ado, a visual interpretation of us searching for the perfect shot followed by the fruits of out labor.
