I also got my copy signed when I met her during the Ontario Library Association's Festival of Reading where Cracked Up To Be was nominated for a White Pine Award. Cracked Up To Be didn't win but it was still one of my fave books of the nominations! I was kind of nervous/excited to meet her that day but she's a really kind and nice person! (I don't think I'll forget how cold it was either...)
Okay, so before I keep rambling on, here's the cover!

Summary (from Goodreads):
When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. He seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on… but some questions should be left unanswered.
Isn't the cover pretty awesome? Dark and edgy- I think it's perfect for this contemporary book.
