- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
You might be saying to yourself - Luanne, those are two different books! Well, they are indeed the same story from the same author (Sophie Hannah), albeit with a title change between North America and Britain. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Having read the synopsis, I can say that both titles capture the plot. And both let us know that twelve years have passed - and the children haven't grown. Okay - both cover have a dark colour scheme. I'm growing weary of 'silhouettes in a window denoting danger and mystery' covers, so the UK cover is not my choice this week. Although I thought dog tag when I first looked at the cover, I like the rust and ribbon that are part of the image. So, US for me this week. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Which title do you prefer? Any plans to read this one?
