About THE DEEP END OF THE SEA:
What if all the legends you've learned were wrong? Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age. But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.
I think this is such a cool cover! I really like the dark blue to light blue happening on the cover to give it that extra depth and the beautiful white script for the title. I think this book would look beautiful displayed on a book case. The only thing I would change about it would be to have the cover models hair crazier, because it's Medusa and she is known for her hair. I wouldn't say to go so far as snakes, but to definitely make it poofed out around her more. Other than that I think it is a beautiful cover.
