So, I've heard of Ellen Hopkins. I think just about every young adult reader has. I have a few of her books on my wishlist, too. I've read the synopsis of her newest book, Tricks. But, it wasn't until today when I walked into Borders and looked at the back of the book- that didn't have the synopsis, but an excerpt- that I felt the incredible need to read Tricks. Let's see if I can find the beautiful excerpt to share with you guys....Nope, I can't. Sorry! But, if you see the book pick it up and read the back; it is raw and beautiful. Anyways, the cover also caught my eye:
This cover is so simplistic. So intruiging. So...awesome? I'm out of words. All I know is that I love the font, the colors, the backround (which appears to be a sheet), and the smoke effect. I'm not really sure how it will tie in with the book, but right now I just all around love it. It also fits with the themes of her other covers, which I think is very cool.
But, you know, that's just one person's opinion. What do you think?
