Last week, I showcased some of the cover trends for 2013 YA books, and today, I bring you part two of the three part series (it might be four part — I haven’t quite figured that out yet). Again, these are things I’ve noticed after looking through tons of lists, cover reveals, and publisher catalogs, and they only represent covers already available to see for the coming year. There will be repeat covers in the various categories.
All descriptions are via WorldCat or Goodreads. If you can think of other 2013 YA covers fitting any of these categories, leave a comment.
Cities in the Distance
How many covers can either weave in (or in some cases, cram in) a cityscape into the background of the image? Sometimes you can figure out what the city is based on the landmarks and buildings you can recognize, and sometimes, the city is generic and unrecognizable.
This is a metaphoric cover trend, of course, when there is a person standing in the foreground of the city. Especially in YA. You know. One teen, taking on the big world.
Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff: Sixteen-year-old Boy Nobody, an assassin controlled by a shadowy government organization, The Program, considers sabotaging his latest mission because his target reminds him of the normal life he craves.
Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons: After escaping prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings are taken in by the Resistance but when Ember tops the government’s most-wanted list, Chase urges her to run and Ember must decide whether to hide again or fight back.
Catherine by April Lindner: In this retelling of “Wuthering Heights,” Catherine explains how she fell in love with a brooding musician and left her family to return to him, and her daughter describes searching for her mother many years later.
A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Liesel Schwarz: It is 1903, and the world is divided between light and shadow. On the side of light is a wondrous science that has transformed everyday life by harnessing magical energies to ingenious new technologies. But each advance of science has come at the expense of shadow—the traditional realm of the supernatural. Now two ancient powers are preparing to strike back. Blood-sucking immortal Nightwalkers and their spellcasting Alchemist allies have a plan to cover the whole world in shadow. All they require is the sacrifice of a certain young woman whose past conceals a dangerous secret. But when they come after Elle, they get more than they bargained for. This enterprising young woman, the daughter of a scientific genius, has reserves of bravery and determination that even she scarcely suspects. Now she is about to meet her match in more ways than one: a handsome yet infuriating Warlock named Hugh Marsh, whose agenda is as suspect as his charms are annoyingly irresistible.
Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier: I can’t even find the description in English yet. But this is the US cover for the third book in the trilogy.
Fragments by Dan Wells: With the Help of Samm and Heron, Kira sets out on a desperate search for clues as to who she is, while Marcus and the remaining human population gear up for war with the Paritals.
Frozen by Melissa De La Cruz and Michael Johnston: More than a century after a catastrophic disaster wiped out most of humanity and covered much of the earth with ice, fifteen-year-old Cass yields to the voice in her head urging her to embark on a dangerous journey across a poisoned sea to the mythical land, Blue.
Gates of Paradise by Melissa De La Cruz: In the final installment of the Blue Bloods series, the young vampires of Manhattan must make terrible sacrifices in order to triumph over Lucifer and the Silver Bloods. Worth noting that all of the Blue Bloods books have taken this look to them.
Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey: A orphaned sixteen-year-old servant in Victorian England finds love while unraveling the secrets of a mysterious society of inventors and their most dangerous creation. There’s a different cover in the WorldCat description, so this may not be the final.
Orleans by Sherri L. Smith: Set in a futuristic, hostile Orleans landscape, Fen de la Guerre must deliver her tribe leader’s baby over the Wall into the Outer States before her blood becomes tainted with Delta Fever.
Phoenix by Elizabeth Richards: Weeks after his crucifixion and rebirth as Phoenix, Ash Fisher believes his troubles are far behind him. He and Natalie are engaged and life seems good. But his happiness is short-lived when he receives a threatening visit from Purian Rose, who gives Ash an ultimatum: vote in favor of Rose’s Law permanently relegating Darklings to the wrong side of the wall or Natalie will be killed. The decision seems obvious to Ash; he must save Natalie. But when Ash learns about The Tenth, a new and deadly concentration camp where the Darklings would be sent, the choice doesn’t seem so simple. Unable to ignore his conscience, Ash votes against Rose’s Law, signing Natalie’s death warrant and putting a troubled nation back into the throes of bloody battle.
Slated by Teri Terry: Kyla’s memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost for ever. She’s been Slated. The government claims she was a terrorist, and that they are giving her a second chance – as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?
Solstice by PJ Hoover: Piper’s world is dying. Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles that threaten to destroy the earth. Amid this global heating crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom. Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth. This book was originally published by Hoover, but Tor is publishing it in 2013. This cover AND the original cover have the city thing going on.
The Ward by Jordana Frankel: Sixteen-year-old Ren is a daredevil mobile racer who will risk everything to survive in the Ward, what remains of a water-logged Manhattan. To save her sister, who is suffering from a deadly illness thought to be caused by years of pollution, Ren accepts a secret mission from the government: to search for a freshwater source in the Ward, with the hope of it leading to a cure. However, she never expects that her search will lead to dangerous encounters with a passionate young scientist; a web of deceit and lies; and an earth-shattering mystery that’s lurking deep beneath the water’s rippling surface.
Is it me or is there also something about people being inside the letters of the title, too? See the Frankel cover, as well as a number of the covers where the font takes up much of the real estate in the first post of 2013 cover trends.
The Strange and Familiar Place by Rachel Carter: Lydia Bentley will do anything to fix the mistakes she made in the past, like losing her grandfather in time–and the only way she knows how to begin is by time traveling to 1980s New York with Wes, posed as a Montauk Project recruit.
Tiger by William Richter: Wally lives alone in her Brooklyn loft. She’d be a regular teenager, except that she’s the daughter of a Russian assassin. Crime is in Wally’s blood, but she uses her legacy for good: she solves missing persons cases for the Ursula Society, an under-the-radar organization that uses oft-illegal tactics to find people the police have given up on. The person Wally most wants to find? Tiger, her own fugitive brother. But the closer Wally gets to finding Tiger, the more dangerous her search becomes. And Klesko, Wally and Tiger’s sadistic father, is again at large. With two highly-skilled con men against them, Wally and Tiger band together to destroy a conspiracy in which they—and their hearts—are mere pawns.
What We Become by Jesse Karp: Two years after destroying a corporate empire intent on controlling human thinking through technology, teenagers Mal and Laura engage in another battle to save humanity when a “coporate bogeyman” known only as the Old Man tries to gain absolute power.
Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith: Hilary T. Smith’s debut novel captures the messy glory of being alive, as seventeen-year-old Kiri Byrd discovers love, loss, chaos, and murder woven into a summer of music, madness, piercing heartbreak, and intoxicating joy.
Replica by Jenna Black: Sixteen-year-old Nadia Lake comes from a high-class Executive family in the Corporate States. Her marriage has been arranged with the most powerful family in her state, which means she lives a life of privilege but also of public scrutiny, followed everywhere by photographers, every detail of her private life tabloid fodder. But her future is assured, as long as she can maintain her flawless public image — no easy feat when your betrothed is a notorious playboy. Nathan Hayes is the heir of Paxco — controller of the former state of New York, and creator of human replication technology, science that every state and every country in the world would kill to have. Though Nadia and Nate aren’t in love, they’ve grown up close, and they (and the world) are happy enough with their match. Until Nate turns up dead, and as far as everyone knows, Nadia was the last person to see him alive. When the new Nate wakes up in the replication tanks, he knows he must have died, but with a memory that only reaches to his last memory backup, he doesn’t know what killed him. Together, Nadia and Nate must discover what really happened without revealing the secrets that those who run their world would kill to protect.
About eight percent of the world’s population has blue eyes. But, we note eye color pretty frequently in YA fiction (seriously — I don’t really notice people’s eye color unless it’s completely noteworthy and most of the time, that’s not because they’re blue). So it only goes that a lot of book covers feature people with blue eyes.
A Touch Menacing by Leah Clifford: I couldn’t pull a description from WorldCat nor Goodreads.
Asunder by Jodi Meadows: After the devastation of Templedark, eighteen-year-old Ana must stand up for the additional newsouls and figure out the mystery of their–and her–existence.

Now with the beasts concentrating their attacks on Finn, he and his master must race to locate the lost Spear of the Tuatha De Danaan, the only weapon that can destroy the Amandán, all the while hiding his true identity from his new friends, Rafe and Savannah, twins whose South African roots may hold a key to Finn’s survival. Armed with a bronze dagger, some ancient Celtic magic, and a hair-trigger temper, Finn is about to show his enemies the true meaning of “fighting Irish.”

And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

Imposter by Susanne Winnacker: Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again. Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl.

Colored Hair Streaks
This is a tiny trend but maybe one of my favorites. I love that these models all have a streak of color in their hair, and I think that has mega appeal to teen readers who will see themselves in these average looking girls. I note this small trend because the only other books I can think of with people on the cover that have colorful hair are the Lisa and Laura Roecker Liar Society books.
A Touch Menacing by Leah Clifford: See above, under blue eyes.
Over You by Amy Reed: A novel about two girls on the run from their problems, their pasts, and themselves. Max and Sadie are escaping to Nebraska, but they’ll soon learn they can’t escape the truth.
You Look Different in Real Life by Jennifer Castle: The premise was simple: five kids, just living their lives. There’d be a new movie about them every five years, starting in kindergarten. But no one could have predicted what the cameras would capture. And no one could have predicted that Justine would be the star. Now sixteen, Justine doesn’t feel like a star anymore. In fact, when she hears the crew has gotten the green light to film “Five at Sixteen,” all she feels is dread. The kids who shared the same table in kindergarten have become teenagers who hardly know one another. And Justine, who was so funny and edgy in the first two movies, just feels like a disappointment. But these teens have a bond that goes deeper than what’s on film. They’ve all shared the painful details of their lives with countless viewers. They all know how it feels to have fans as well as friends. So when this latest movie gives them the chance to reunite, Justine and her costars are going to take it. Because sometimes, the only way to see yourself is through someone else’s eyes.
Shadows and Silhouettes
They can take up the whole cover or they can be a tiny figment in the distance (often seen running), but there are a ton of shadows and silhouettes of people on covers. I feel like this trend started this year, but it’s full swing next year. I know I am probably missing a number of covers fitting this trend, so please add others you can think of to the comments. I love some of these so much — I particularly like the treatment on the Suma, the Grant, and the Block covers.
Where I think there’s a chance this treatment could go too sexy (and I think it goes a little bit down the sexy road on Escape Theory), I’m pleased there aren’t weak shadows or silhouettes or girls with no agency in them.

Masked and Shushed
Here are two smaller trends — neither are big ones, so I’m putting them together. The first is the eye mask, and the second is the shushing on the cover. Sometimes they are one in the same, too. This is the last set of trends for this post, since this is starting to get a little lengthy.
Asunder by Jodi Meadows: See description under “Blue eyes.”

Nestled among the glowing blue Penglass—remnants of a mysterious civilisation long gone—are wonders beyond the wildest imagination.
