Cover Love #11

I've got a pretty, I've got a pretty, I've got a pretty hey hey hey hey. Go on, finish the song. I'll wait.

Anyways! I picked an awfully pretty one this week, in my opinion. Well, that is, my version of pretty. The kind of pretty that makes me sit back and go "Oooooooh" and then scramble for the synopsis to find out what's going on.

Aries, Clementine, Michael, and Mason have survived the first wave of the apocalypse that wiped out most of the world’s population and turned many of the rest into murderous Baggers. Now they’re hiding out in an abandoned house in Vancouver with a ragtag group of fellow teen survivors, trying to figure out their next move.

     Aries is trying to lead, but it’s hard to be a leader when there are no easy answers and every move feels wrong. Clementine is desperate to find her brother Heath, but it’s impossible to know where he’d be, assuming he’s alive. Michael is haunted by the memories of his actions during his harrowing struggle to survive. And Mason is struggling with something far worse: the fear that he may be a danger to his friends.

     As the Baggers begin to create a new world order, these four teens will have to trust and rely on each other in order to survive.
 Not much to say about this one other than "Lookee lookee lookee!" I'm a sucker for dark, saturated covers. Add a post-apocalyptic setting, a cracked and ruined road leading to a possibly abandoned metropolis, and a beat-up white van leaking blood, and I'm all there. Squee!

What cover are you loving this week?
