I LOVE this cover! The illustrator who did it, Christopher Silas Neal, has done some other books as well including the next book of this trilogy which is Forge. He never shows the face of the characters he's doing. It's just not there or they are covered up. It's a really great book. It's historical fiction which is pretty rare for me but again the cover drew me in. It also by Laurie Halse Anderson who has done among others Speak and Wintergirls. She seems to like to go after the hard topics. The review is coming soon!
