Jenny Downham’s ‘Unbecoming’ is just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside!

unbecoming pbJenny Downham’s third novel, ‘Unbecoming’, is finally out in paperback and it’s GORGEOUS! The YA Book Prize-shortlisted novel tells the story of three generations of women in a family, all with secrets, and the ways they clash and collide.

It’s only fair that a beautiful novel should get an equally beautiful cover.

Why do we love it?

1. The Hair. I mean serious hair envy, right there. It’s all flyaway and wispy and gloriously red.

2. GREEN. Green is one of those colours that doesn’t always work, but this just POPS. Especially against the lovely red hair!

3. Font. What do you mean we’re obsessed with fonts and typography?! Okay, yeah, we totally are… But it can really make a cover and it definitely does that with ‘Unbecoming’

But we’re not the only ones that think it’s gorgeous!
