Love The Cover, Simmone Howell

I love the cover of Notes From The Teenage Underground by Simmone Howell. The cover looks like someone has sat down and done some awesome doodles. I like it very much.

From Amazon:

Seventeen-year-old Gem feels as if she's beginning to drift away from her best friends, Lo and Mira, with whom she's formed an alliance against the "sucker peers" they call "barcodes." In the spirit of Andy Warhol and his Happenings, Gem comes up with the idea to make an edgy film to screen at an underground party, she thinks this project will bring the three girls back together again. As scriptwriting and production begins, however, she starts to feel that the project is getting out of control.

A quick google reveals that it actually comes in many different covers...



It's a good book :) Anyone else read it? Which cover do you like best?

EDIT: The fantastic Adele over at Persnickety Snark has just interviewed Simmone Howell and has a guest blog coming up soon!

Also, if anyone out there lives in Melbourne you can meet Simmone Howell and Justine Larbalestier on Feb 22!! How cool :)

  6. I love the first two! The one we have here is the last one you posted, which is fine...but still, the doodle one and then the first out of the three are by far my faves!
