Before I Read Burn for Burn

Before I read a book, I look at its cover. Despite what people say, you can tell a lot about a book based simply on what it looks like on the outside. Although you can't judge a story by its cover, the outward appearance of the book is what can draw you in and make you want to read it. I love talking about covers maybe as much as I love talking about the books themselves, so I started this feature that spotlights the covers of upcoming books I am excited to read.
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Release: September 18, 2012
BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY...
THEY GET EVEN.

Lillia has never had any problems dealing with boys who like her. Not until this summer, when one went too far. No way will she let the same thing happen to her little sister.

Kat is tired of the rumors, the insults, the cruel jokes. It all goes back to one person– her ex-best friend– and she's ready to make her pay.

Four years ago, Mary left Jar Island because of a boy. But she's not the same girl anymore. And she's ready to prove it to him.

Three very different girls who want the same thing: sweet, sweet revenge. And they won't stop until they each had a taste.
This cover has to be one of my recent favorites. When you combine the color scheme and the lighting, you get a cover image that has a candid, yet almost ethereal feel to it. The best part is the oversize, opaque text that floats on top of the whole thing. I have heard it likened to something from a fashion magazine, and I could not agree more. I only hope that the book is everything its cover promises.
