I've got to hand it to them. One thing really going for this book is the cover. Simone seems to really like the color black because all of her books have black in them! I guess it's like her signature thing. The cover is very nice. I like how now young adult books are mostly having not drawings but pictures as their cover. At least as far as I know books they didn't have pictures of people before. I also like how there is actually someone with color on this cover. It's just that whenever there are pictures of people on covers their usually white. Which is cool but it's not...factual... well it's just that not everyone looks the same in the world and has the same color.
