This horrible - infantile, in my humble view - cover decks the UK book sitting on my daughter Erin's shelf. We had to order the book for her and this is what the bookshop imported from the UK. Would you have bought this if you'd seen it in a shop? Not me, babe. I get that the body parts are attached to a frame as if it were a model, but still, it misses the mark for me.

But the US cover doesn't excite me much either. Then again, I can't think of a better way of depicting the legalized dismembering of kids to get to their body parts . . . Have you any ideas?
This final cover was used on the eBook. Why it needed a different cover is anyone's guess. I quite like the red strip. The bloody streak adds some 'life' to the cover. Sick joke, given what the book's about.
So what are your thought? As usual I'd love to hear them.
