I soooo love book covers. Honestly I've been known to drag my sister through the bookstore to show her a cover I like or hunt down certain students to show them. It really is like I have a crush. So once a week I like to highlight these covers.
This week I'm crushing on:
Revolution by Jennifery Donnelly
The new (?) paperback cover
When I saw this cover for Revolution I stopped me in my tracks! There is just something about it that makes me stare. There isn't a lot her, but somehow it just conveys emotion - a just type of sadness or longing or something. Then there's that key. Why is it there???? Why does it seem so important?? Such a simple cover that totally grabs me. I was never real fond of the hardcover version, and to be honest I know it turned off some of my 7th grade readers. This one I think will interest them much more.
