Monday Muse: Cover Stories (4)

US vs. UK & Other Foreign Covers
I haven't read Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabriella Zevin yet, but I plan to because my library has a copy. I went to Zevin's website and found some interesting covers and thought I'd share. Which one do you like best?

US Hardcover

UK Paperback

German Version

Italian Version, translates to "I Forgot Why I Loved You".

I think I like the UK version the best because it's colorful. If I were walking past it in a bookstore, it would pop out of the shelves.

If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn't have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn't have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn't have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her “Chief.” She'd know about her mom's new family. She'd know about her dad's fiancée. She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn't have wanted to kiss him back.
But Naomi picked heads.

The Italian/English & US version remind me of The Book Thief, for some odd reason.
