Expectations vs. Reality: Infinite Sky

Expectations vs. Reality is a feature here inspired by Small Review that will compare my expectations from a book cover before seeing the summary with the summary itself.

This week, I'm looking at Infinite Sky by C. J. Flood. 


The lovely, simple artwork of the cover makes me think of a contemporary novel. From the corn, there are definitely some farm vibes going on, and the bugs flying around are reminiscent of summer. This seems like a story of a country girl, perhaps, that takes place during the summer. The title makes me think that she's gone through some type of hardship, and this may be a coming-of-age story.


From Goodreads:
A truly beautiful book about the summer that changed one girl’s life, as her mum leaves home, travellers set up camp in the family’s field, her older brother goes off the rails, and she falls in love for the very first time. Opening with a funeral, Iris is mourning the boy in the casket – but who is it? Sam, her tearaway brother, or Trick, her tentative boyfriend? Over one long hot summer, we find out just how their three lives were turned upside-down.
Looks like I got pretty close! The summary sounds wonderful, though, and I like the idea of a mystery to see who she lost. And of course, the cover is gorgeous.

What were your expectations when you saw the cover?
