The totes adorbs factor of this cover is OFF THE CHARTS and fits one aspect of this story very well.  However, the cover is tricky in that it gives you the impression you’re about to read a fun and flirty rom-com.  Although there definitely IS some of that, Yes No Maybe So also gives readers lots to think about in regards to politics, religion, and the downside of going viral.
