Cave Spring High School student Colleen Truskey took an arresting close up portrait of classmate Sarah Beth Penny and posted it to the popular art website DeviantArt.com. One thing she did not expect: that someone from major publisher Random House would find the photo, decide it would make a good book cover, and make her an offer. Yet that’s exactly what happened.
Truskey and Penny, now seniors, were also asked to create footage for the Flutter book trailer. Watch the video below:
