First World Problems by LeighAnn Kopans Cover Reveal!!

Hello guys!

Today I have a cover to share with you all, for a book that I've been quite excited for since I heard that the author was writing it! I've loved all the books that LeighAnn Kopans has written and I've read, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love this one too! She even managed to make fall head over heels with a contemporary retelling of Mansfield Park, so I'm pretty sure this will be a New Adult I'm gonna love!

First of all, before I share the awesome cover designed by the extremely talented writer and graphic designer Hafsah Laziaf from Icey Designs , let me tell you a bit more about First World Problems!


First World Problems by LeighAnn Kopans

Expected Publication September 2nd 2014

Contemporary Upper YA/Lower NA




 "Sofia's had a really rough year - busted for cheating at prep school, dumped - dumped! - for the first time ever, and her new non-profit working stepmother is turning out to be an uppity bitch.

She deserves to treat herself. But when she throws herself a birthday party with 20 of her closest friends in Paris and (accidentally!) maxes out her dad's credit card in the process, he’s had enough of her attitude. As punishment, he switches her planned gap year touring Europe to one doing community service work with the evil stepmother’s relief organization in Guyana.

The rural village of Dabu needs help in every area from education to getting safe drinking water. But Sofia’s more concerned about her roommate Callum, the gardening expert, who calls Sofia "Princess" and scoffs at her distaste for sweaty, muddy, iguana-eating, outhouse-using life in Guyana.

Eventually, life on the equator, her work in the village, and especially Callum - with his brooding eyes and bewitching New Zealand accent - start to grow on Sofia. Life is rough in Guyana, but it’s roughest on the girls, whose families are too poor to send only the most promising boys in school. They’re trapped in a cycle that will keep them from ever making a better life for themselves, or for the village. Worse, Callum doesn’t seem to think any of the changes Sofia envisions are actually necessary.

Determined to change the girls’ futures, she comes up with a strategy to help them and, ultimately, the village. But what starts out as a plan to convince Callum and her father that she’s fallen in love with Guyana, turns into the realization that maybe she’s falling for Callum, too. And that by changing these girls’ lives, she might also be changing her own."



Ready to see the cover in all its glory?!?

Isn't it adorable and perfect for the story?? I love how well it compliments and sort of matches the cover for Solving for Ex, while both being different and distinct enough. Both are standalones but companion novels and the cover reflects that perfectly!



 About the author:

Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.

Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again.)

  1. Hey! I actually really like the cover. I noticed that her books have nice covers, and I'm glad the team she's with are making really good efforts to make them alluring to the eyes. I'd read this one for that cover alone!
