Check out this paperback

Although this one doesn’t bother me in the way that this hardcover-paperback cover change did, I’m really not feeling this one.

I love the somewhat cold feeling this cover has. It absolutely fits with the story. It’s eye-catching, as well.

But then they needed to go and do this for the paperback:

Now, I saw this in an advertisement for Penguin paperbacks in the latest VOYA, so it might not be 100%. I really, really hope not. Covers with people are overdone, and I really enjoyed this particular title because the readers make up their mind about Mia in so many ways. The paperback gives us an image of her, and frankly, it reminds me a lot of 13 Reasons Why, and by doing that, I have a different image of what the book will be about. It sounds like suicide, doesn’t it, with that image and the title?

Here’s the Australian cover, too. Another one I’m not a huge fan of, but this one I don’t care for because it seems too childish:

Do you have a preference? I think the face-on-the-cover has been overdone, and I found the hardcover of this title so refreshing and different.

    I completely agree with you. They're taking a really distinctive cover and replacing it with something that looks like a million other covers. Sigh.
