Cover War: What Happened to Goodbye

Cover War is something I decided to start doing after seeing different covers for the same book. I realized that I liked some covers better than others. For example one book might have a different cover for its US and UK copies. I thought making this "Cover War" feature would be a fun way of showing the different covers and why I like one more than the other.

I probably won't have a Cover War for each book that has a different cover. This will most likely only be a sporadic post for "special" covers or books.

Todays' Cover War is between the US Hardcover and the UK Paperback of What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen. The US Hardcover will be to the left and the UK Paperback will be to the right.

I think both covers are very pretty and a good sense of the book, but the winner of of this Cover War has to be the UK Paperback. I like that it has a basketball and other little things that relate to the story. While the US Hardcover captures the story with the suitcase I think the UK Paperback captures it even better by having all the little details coming out of a suitcase.

I always like the UK-covers for the Dessen books better, the US ones always seems so cheesy for some reason
