just one dayGayle Forman has shared Cover Stories for her lovely novels If I Stay and Where She Went – these were epic tales of covers tried and tweaked. Her new novel, Just One Day, has a lovely, reflective cover. And this one? It’s got a pretty straightforward Cover Story:

“Penguin sent me a cover.  I liked it.”

Sometimes it’s that simple! Yay! And I think this cover is great. For me, it captures the introspective nature of traveling, and how going on a journey can point your  mind inward and help you figure out things about yourself. Can’t wait to read!

What do you guys think?

    I like it, because the first thing I noticed was her watch, which is not a high schooler’s watch. But then the book talks about her getting a watch for graduation and it turns out to be pretty important. The description doesn’t seem like the watch on the cover, but it’s still a big visual element that makes sense with the contents of the book.

    Ha! This made me laugh. Great cover story. :P

    Ha! Straight and to the point! I, too, like the cover. I like how it’s seen through a window.

    Haha nice! I’m so stoked for 2013. So many great book releases. Just One Day’s at the top of my list!

    I really liked the cover of this one and it really captures the mood of the book, and that it’s Allyson’s story (despite that all the ads indicate that it’s a romance-heavy novel). And the detail of the over-the-top watch really makes it work, since that’s an important detail in the book.

    Does anyone know where to buy that watch? It’s really beautifu!
