Favourite Cover Friday
I’m always drawn to covers with forests in them.
This week my favourite cover is:
When I first read this I thought the cover was called ‘Dark Compassion’, goodreads told me other wise.
The forest just looks awesome. With white fog hiding the expanse of the trees, the trees are skinny yet have branches poking out of them with no leaves on them, the leaves on the ground are all shrivelled up and brown.
The girl has gorgeous brown hair, jealous, just saying… The white dress the girl is wearing makes this cover interesting because of the contrast of the forest to the girl. It makes her look out of place as sorts.
The white leafy pattern on the bottom is pretty and I think makes the cover a little more interesting than it would have looked without it.
The font is an interesting choice though. I don’t really like it, it looks like it’s out of place as well. Maybe that’s the premise of the book?
When foster teen Jane Williams is invited to attend elite Birch Grove Academy for Girls and escape her violent urban neighborhood, she thinks the offer is too good to be true. She’s even offered her own living quarters, the groundskeeper’s cottage in the center of the birch grove.
Something’s not quite right about the school — or is it Jane? She thinks she sees things in the birch grove at night. She’s also beginning to suspect that the elegant headmistress and her sons are hiding secrets. Lucky is the gorgeous, golden son who is especially attentive to Jane, and Jack is the sardonic puzzling brother.
The school with its talented teachers and bright students is a dream for a science and math geek like Jane. She also loves her new friends, including hilarious poetry-spouting rich girl, Mary Violet. But the longer Jane stays at Birch Grove, the more questions she has about the disappearance of another scholarship girl and a missing faculty member.
Jane discovers one secret about Birch Grove, which only leads to more mysteries. What is she willing to sacrifice in order to stay at this school…and be bound to Birch Grove forever?
