I'm not sure if you've heard anything about it but...our old, wrinkled pensive Fine Lines feature has spawned a brightly covered book, 'Shelf Discovery, out today! Want to show your YA chops and win a copy? Please click through...
One of the wonderful things about the books of this era, I have always felt, is the cover art — which not only showed us the girls in the novel, but showed them in such attentive specificity that even now just seeing the images again elicits a visceral aesthetic shock. To celebrate the pub date of Shelf Discovery, I wanted to celebrate the covers and not the innards for a change. I ALSO have 10 countem 10 copies to give away! So here's the deal:
Below, please find 21 (in honor of coming-of-age etc.) covers from my bookshelves. Some have appeared in the column, in which case I have used a different edition. Some have not. Some are major, some are minor. The rules are, in the comments, using each image's number, you name as many as you can. You are all on the honor system here, but as this quiz seems kind of hard I can't imagine cheating being of any use. You must go with your shelves and discoveries, ladies, and you have until Friday, when I will announce the winners! Those who have the most correct answers win, and in the cases of those with the same number of corrects you will win by time stamp. If you don't have a profile, please also feel free to email me your answers at firstname.lastname@example.org, and your own favorite covers, if you have them.
BONUS, because have same cover model, which I think is funny:
