The cover art was released for the upcoming novel SLEEPING IN MY JEANS by Willamette Writers member Connie King Leonard. The debut young adult novel paints a raw, honest portrayal of teenage homelessness and resiliency in the face of insurmountable odds.
With an estimated 21,000 homeless students in the Oregon school system this year alone, Sleeping in My Jeans works to shine a light on the oft-forgotten stories of our society’s most vulnerable youth. The cover chosen for this novel helps convey the fear and isolation that comes with homelessness, while perfectly setting the scene for the mystery and suspense to come.
