This One’s for You is a young adult novel by Kate Sweeney, published by Viking, an imprint of Penguin Random House. The book follows the relationship and personal development of two ex-best friends as they embark on a road trip after their high school graduation.

Theresa Evangelista designed the book jacket by creating a narrative interplay with the composition of the illustration (by Nicole Rifkin) and text. On the left side of the cover, the character’s upward line of sight follows the angle of the title, set in Cortado (with an apostrophe customized by Evangelista). The italic movement of the title flows with the right side character’s wind blown hair and leads to her downward stare. The author’s name is set in caps from Trend Rough Sans One.
