Hey, 24hr.YABookBlog here (~˘▾˘)~ 💞✨📚 I’m back on the blog today to discuss a cover reveal I’ve been highly anticipating!
The podcast, told through therapy sessions, among various audio recordings, focuses on therapist Dr. Bright who provides therapy for the “strange and unusual” or those with supernatural abilities. The show delves deeper into Dr.Bright’s past and more about her patients!
The podcast explores and discusses mental health in such an in-depth way and presents a brilliant and incredibly developed cast of characters–So, I HIGHLY recommend checking out this podcast if you haven’t already!
The first Bright Sessions novel, titled The Infinite Noise had its official cover reveal today via Lauren Shippen’s Twitter and today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on this cover & a little bit more on why I’m really looking forward to this book!
Here is the cover
Cover Artist: Victo Ngai
Here’s a full summary of The Infinite Noise:
Caleb Michaels is your average sixteen-year-old. He goes to school, plays football, teases his little sister. But when Caleb starts experiencing mood swings that are out of the ordinary for even a teenager, his life moves beyond “typical.”
Caleb is an Atypical, an individual with enhanced abilities. Which sounds pretty cool except Caleb’s ability is extreme empathy—he feels the emotions of everyone around him. Being an empath in high school would be hard enough, but Caleb’s life becomes even more complicated when he keeps getting pulled into the emotional orbit of one of his classmates, Adam. Adam’s feelings are big and all-consuming, but they fit together with Caleb’s feelings in a way that he can’t quite understand.
Caleb’s therapist, Dr. Bright, encourages Caleb to explore this connection by befriending Adam. As he and Adam grow closer, Caleb learns more about his ability, himself, his therapist—who seems to know a lot more than she lets on—and just how dangerous being an Atypical can be.
This is a fantastic cover & I can’t believe this book will actually be releasing this year!! The colors, the art-style, it captures and really illustrates Caleb’s ability (as an empath) and with that, Caleb as a character!
I’m beyond excited to read this book, not only as a big fan of the podcast looking to get more background into some of my favorite characters from the show, but also seeing how many more people will discover this amazing podcast through Shippen’s novel!
I’ve been a fan of this podcast for years and its amazing to see Shippen expand on the wonderful characters she’s created with this upcoming trilogy!
