Pete Garceau on Creating the Cool Cover for Tim Johnston’s The Current
The Current was a title that was given to me by the creative director of Algonquin Books, Anne Winslow.
The story takes place in the dead of winter, outside a small town in Minnesota. It focuses on 2 murders, that happened 10 years apart. Both victims were teenage girls, that died in the exact same spot, under the ice of a frozen river. The last girl to drown, had her car rammed off an icy road, into the frozen river, by an unknown attacker. With her, in the car, was a friend that survived the crash, who unearths secrets throughout the story, that lead to the killer.
