Cover Love #35


Ben could date anyone he wants, but he only has eyes for the new girl — sarcastic free-spirit, Ani. Luckily for Ben, Ani wants him too. She’s everything Ben could ever imagine. Everything he could ever want.

But that all changes after the party. The one Ben misses. The one Ani goes to alone.

Now Ani isn’t the girl she used to be, and Ben can’t sort out the truth from the lies. What really happened, and who is to blame?

Ben wants to help her, but she refuses to be helped. The more she pushes Ben away, the more he wonders if there’s anything he can do to save the girl he loves.
I think I like the simplicity of this cover best. We aren't subjected to a girl in a pretty dress, a smooching couple, a fanciful background, bloodstains, or any of the other thousand directions the designer could have taken. Instead, the formula is very simple. One dark blue background + one title and one author's name in simple font + one tiny tagline + one lighter recently lit = one very simple and very striking cover. I love the dark, somber colors and the sparking lighter. I love the way the lighter almost resembles the muzzle of a gun, promising violence and danger. This isn't a safe novel, and the cover makes no guarantee to the contrary.

Have you read Fault Line? What did you think? What do you think of the cover?
