The graphics of Young Adult titles are the best.
My camera had to take a picture of this book. It was on a display rack at the big Barnes and Noble on Union Square. It was right as you come in the door, to the left. I’d seen it before.
Sometimes when I’m roaming around the store, which I do often, I’ll be stopped by a great-looking book. I’ll think it is a new book meant for me, but usually it’s a Young Adult novel. They have great covers. Better-looking than movie posters. Better than TV ads I see.
I hope they’re irresistible to the kids they’re aimed at. I hope the school libraries keep up with the new titles. I hope the kids have time to read them in school.
