Whenever I look at the cover of Slated by Teri Terry, I start to ponder, how do we see the world? How does the world see us? No two eyes see things the same, which’s why I like this cover. The juxtaposition of the girl’s gaze against the cityscape, makes me think about the place of individuals in society.
While this isn’t what this book might be about (I have yet to read it), there’s something about covers that are thought-provoking in themselves. And as much as faces alone on covers don’t tell us all that much about what to expect, here the eyes of the girl tell me to expect a deeper story — one that isn’t so clear on the surface. After all, why else would memories be erased?
Have you come across any book covers that made you think about more than just the book?
