Since the last time Teen Fire decided to do this, ask for our opinion on cover decision, they got so much feedback they have decided to make it a regular thing!! Yay us!! We are making a difference people!! (Am I the only one excited? -.-)
Anyways! This time the book we are going to help pick a cover for is called The Weight of Bones (uuuh spooky) by Janet Gurtler. Its coming out in April 2011 (2011!!!!) and its a YA novel.
The protagonist is brainy Tess Smith, the younger sibling of her beautiful, popular, volleyball-scholarship-bound sister Kristina. When Kristina is diagnosed with bone cancer, it drastically changes both sisters' lives. This is a YA literary novel (in the vein of Jodi Picoult or Sarah Dessen).
My choice is number 1 because it looks awesome, I like the design on the skin, and for me the pose of the model and how you can't really see her entire face makes me think of someone broken, hurt, scared, and who wishes to hide from something (maybe hide from reality?). The designs on the skin, for me, symbolizes the cancer that lingers inside her skin, only visible to those who care enough to take a look.
Anyways, that's just me. I think the other covers don't represent the seriousness of the overall plot, although I would give number 2 a shot.
