Cover Talk: The Next Terra Elan McVoy Book!

So, if you follow me regularly, you probably know that I am a huge Terra Elan McVoy fan girl. I just adore her books. So far, she's released Pure, After the Kiss, and The Summer of Firsts and Lasts. When I met her at BEA, she slipped me some hints about her next book, due out in the spring, and now she's revealed it (and the cover) on her blog!

Being Friends With Boys!

Don't you just love the title? Here's what it's about:
"Charlotte and Oliver have been friends forever. She knows that he, Abe, and Trip consider her to be one of the guys, and that’s how she likes it. She likes being the one who keeps them all together. Likes offering a girl’s perspective on their love lives. Likes being the behind-the-scenes wordsmith who writes all the lyrics for their band. Char has a house full of stepsisters and a past full of backstabbing (female) ex-best friends, so for her, being friends with boys is refreshingly drama-free . . . until it isn’t any more. 
When a new boy enters the scene (hotly) and makes Char feel like, well, a total girl . . . and two of the other guys have a falling out that may or may not be related to one of them maybe wanting to be more than friends with Char . . . being friends with all these boys suddenly feels a lot more complicated."
I cannot tell you how excited I am for this one! It seems like whenever I read the summary of a new book by Terra, it just speaks to me! This one does because I know what it's like being surrounded by boys all the time. I grew up with four brothers (no sisters, unfortunately), and I went to a private school where I was the only girl in my class. So...bring on Charlotte and her story, please!

I also am in love with the cover! Simon and Schuster does such an excellent job with with these ones. I like how they all look similar, and there is always something edible on the cover--plus, the heart in the foam--too cute!

What do you all think?

I've read all her books, and there's something so charming about all of them. Plus the covers' themes are adorable! This one sounds as perfect as all her other ones:)
