Anyway, the paperback is coming out this next month (hooray!) and while I was preparing August's new books order for YA and MG at the bookstore, I noticed that All the Truth That's in Me got a new cover! Here'e the original:
Okay, so it's not horrible. It just makes the girl on the cover look like a ghost (this is not a ghost story). And she's a little too made-up for historical fiction, but whatever. I actually love the slash through the cover, and how it's positioned directly over the girl's mouth--so symbolic! Fantastic!
Here'e the new paperback cover!
I do like the black background and the color of the flower and font. They didn't go for the obvious choice in red, and the orange-ish color is still striking. I also really appreciate that this cover looks like it could fit in next to a bunch of literary fiction novels in a bookstore because I think that this is a book that could appeal to a wider audience of adult readers. But that cover! It's so boring!
What do you think of the cover change? Please don't let any cover feelings get in the way of reading this book because it is OH MY GOD I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED WHAT IS GOING ON NOW AMAZING.
