Go Lisa! (or Three Times the Charm!)

Tip of the Day: If you want to meet Lisa in person, come to the Rochester Teen Book Fest in May!

Lisa, Lisa, bo-beesa, banana-nana fo-feesa, fee fi mo meesa, Lisa! GO LISA!

I have a Border's gift card waiting in my pocket for CHASING BROOKLYN to be in my local store and I can't wait to read it! I loved Lisa's first two novels, and her picture book is popular at my library as well.

My fave cover of Lisa's is the hardcover FAR FROM YOU design.

The colors are rich, the profile with snowflakes is telling and beautiful. It is also unique! I HEART YOU reminds me of the cover for THE COMEBACK SEASON:


CHASING BROOKLYN reminds me of THE BLACK BOX:



Not that there's anything wrong with that! But I'm just naturally attracted to fresh images like I am fresh concepts, and the original FAR FROM YOU cover -- and content! -- fit the bill.

Though the new paperback FFY cover is gorgeous as well, isn't it?


Happy release week, Lisa!!!

I vote for the new paperback cover for FAR FROM YOU as my favorite. It's both unique and evocative of the story.

Oh, WOW. Lisa is soooo loved by the cover gods.

Oooh-- this is a hard choice. The old FFY cover has such great rich colors but the new one seems more like a read anytime cover. Like the snowflakes might make me only want to read the one during winter and the new one I'd probably be drawn to anytime. Either way, Rhonda is right- Lisa always gets great covers!

And Lisa's covers all look pretty next to each other! Well-coodrinated. :)

All your covers are awesome. I think my favorite is the hardcover of Far From You as well. I love the blue!
