Then I procrastinated reading it for a year.
Then I read it a few weeks ago, and the cover jacket fell off, and holy hell it's a double-sided cover. The cover would be flipped around and twisted in case the bookstore didn't think the original cover was marketable enough for boys.
Original cover is on the left; flipped cover is on the right.
I just thought the idea of having double covers is amazing, plus it doesn't let the other side go to waste, PLUS you get a super-cool map of the ship! And the original cover is actually pretty enough (though a bit creepy with the two faces) that I like both of them.
What do you think of both covers? Do you like the double-sided cover idea?
