These tricky things sneak up on you sometimes.
First up, the paperback-changed cover I am not a huge fan of:
And here’s the double:
Will Allison’s Long Drive Home will be published at the end of May. It’s an adult novel, and I find it interesting that this cover with the teen on the cover was the one used for the book. Much like the cover for Mockingbird, the blurb runs at the top of the cover and the author runs at the bottom. Both use white serif fonts, as well.
I don’t necessarily think one covers does it better than the other because they’re so similar. Do you have a preference?
