Cover Comparisons #61: Slide by Jill Hathaway

Living in Germany gives me the perfect opportunity to compare original covers with the ones German publishers choose. Sometimes they're gorgeous, sometimes they make me cringe, but it's always interesting to see different covers for the same novel.

Cover Comparisons is a weekly feature here at Fictional Distraction.

Before I found out about the German cover, the US version was definitely my favorite. While I got used to the UK version, there's still something weird about the cover model's surprised expression that would never make me want to pick up this book in a store (love the color scheme though). The US cover though is really pretty and still somewhat unique in the YA cover world. But I'm sooo in love with the German cover. The effect of the girl's crumbling face is creepy and awesome at the same time and would make me want to know more about the book immediately
