Cover Crush: The Gravity of Us by Phil Stamper

The Gravity of Us by Phil Stamper has such a wonderful cover, and a great book to start off our month of Pride coverage. First of all it’s illustrated which is my favorite trend right now. Plus its so pretty with the pinks and purples. Last but most important is that we have two boys holding hands on the cover! This coming of age story about, two sons of astronauts, who fall in love while their parents are preparing to take the first mission to Mars. So perfect. It is no wonder The Gravity of Us was one of the hottest ARCs (Advance Reader Copy) given out at BookExpo this past week. I can’t tell you how happy I was to not only get a copy but I got to meet Phil and get my copy signed! Thank you so much to Bloomsbury for this awesome opportunity. The Gravity of Us is not releasing until February 4th 2020, but you can preorder it now and be sure to add it to your Want to Read list!

The Gravity of Us was designed by Danielle Ceccolini and illustrated by Patrick Leger.

As a successful social media journalist with half a million followers, seventeen-year-old Cal is used to sharing his life online. But when his pilot father is selected for a highly publicized NASA mission to Mars, Cal and his family relocate from Brooklyn to Houston and are thrust into a media circus.

Amidst the chaos, Cal meets sensitive and mysterious Leon, another “Astrokid,” and finds himself falling head over heels—fast. As the frenzy around the mission grows, so does their connection. But when secrets about the program are uncovered, Cal must find a way to reveal the truth without hurting the people who have become most important to him.

Expertly capturing the thrill of first love and the self-doubt all teens feel, debut author Phil Stamper is a new talent to watch.
