You have probably seen one or more of these covers popping up on blogs lately. If you weren't already aware, Penguin Teen has revamped all of Sarah Dessen's old covers (except What Happened to Goodbye) and slowly--torturously--released them throughout the past 10 days. But as of today they are all out. So here they are:
Individually, I'm not psyched about a lot of these covers, The Truth About Forever in particular (correct me if I'm wrong, but does that have anything to do with the book?) But do like That's Summer, and I do think they look pretty spiffy all together. (Imagine them all lined up on your book case!) The old covers screamed 90s to me, so I'm glad these ones are being directed to today's youth. Sarah Dessen must be known, y'all!
To put it lightly, Sarah Dessen is a genius of mega-squee proportions. As far as I'm concerned, she is the mother of all that is good and holy about Contemporary YA. Her books are a wonderful balance of romance, personal development, friendship, and family. I absolutely adore them. In fact, I have put myself on a Dessen diet and am only allowed to read one every three months so that I don't go through them too quickly. They are too good to be squandered!
Would these new covers get you to stop in a bookstore? Have any favorites?
