Dutch Cover Alert

This idea/meme came from Jenny at Wondrous Reads.

The Netherlands - The United States

Both covers aren’t really eye-catching. I mean, for me they don’t really stand out. When I look at the Dutch cover I think the story is about a girl. And when I look at the American cover I think the story is about a boy and a girl, but that the main character is a boy. Confusing!  That little line ‘I didn’t mean for anyone to die’ is just weird on the cover. It’s very small. It looks like the boy and girl are caught by someone and they don’t look that sorry to me. I do like the placement of the title on the American cover. I don't like the names, in blue, all over the Dutch cover. I just don’t. This time I would choose the American cover.

Would you pick the Dutch or US cover?

You're right. Neither are great. I'm leaning towards the US cover. It seems to convey more of a school vibe.

Great share :)

I'm not a fan of either cover but I think the Dutch cover fits the story more. I like the names all over the cover but I'm not a fan of them in blue.

I like the font and placement on the US cover. I like the girl crying on the Dutch cover. I think this one you would have to combine them for me to really like it. :)

Great one to discuss. I don't think either are great but I do think the Dutch cover related more to the story.

I don't like either but I'm going with the Dutch cover :)

Not a huge fan of either, but I'm going with the Dutch cover on this one!

I think I like the Dutch cover better... mostly because I like the font used for the title! :)

I'm not a huge fan of both covers either. But I'd pick the US one too, it's less crowded and more eye-catching.

I don't really like the covers, but I pick the US cover.

I'm not a big fan of either one as well. The Dutch one just seems overly busy- I don't like all the words over the girls face. The US one is okay, though- probably my fave out of two.
