Cover Crazy- Blood Wounds

This week I am CRAZY About....

Blood Wounds
Susan Beth Pfeffer
Harcourt Children's Books
Pub Date-  September 12, 2011

I think this cover is incredibly striking.  The expression of the girl is so intriguing, it makes me wonder who she is and what story she has to tell.  Is she angry? disturbed?  frightened?  I can't wait to find out.

 From Goodreads:
Willa is lucky: She has a loving blended family that gets along. Not all families are so fortunate. But when a bloody crime takes place hundreds of miles away, it has an explosive effect on Willa’s peaceful life. The estranged father she hardly remembers has murdered his new wife and children, and is headed east toward Willa and her mother.
Under police protection, Willa discovers that her mother has harbored secrets that are threatening to boil over. Has everything Willa believed about herself been a lie? As Willa sets out to untangle the mysteries of her past, she keeps her own secret—one that has the potential to tear her family apart.

  1. I think she looks kind of fed up and exhausted. And the way the title cuts across her face is definitely an attention getter.

  2. The girl looks kinda pissed off in my opinion! Maybe she's out for revenge? Either way, great pick!

  3. I just wanted to stop by and say that I'm now a new follower and I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

    I hadn't heard of this book before now but it sounds interesting. I've heard great things about this author's dystopian novels so I'm interested in reading this one as well. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. After reading the summary of this book, I think the cover is perfect. Nice choice.
