Lookalikes 45

Annie's Baby edited by Beatrice Sparks, Ph. D.

Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr

This is a great one because they really don't look the same but have so many similar elements. Blue car (do you think the first one is in a car or maybe a window?), girl looking out window, and hands up in the frame. I like Story of the Girl better because the design is just much more contemporary, I'm assuming the other cover is a reprint of an older cover?

Which is your favorite?

Thanks to Amee for suggesting this lookalike!

  1. Both covers are kind of mnah. I like Sara Zarr's more. What strikes me more is that the model looks exactly like Abbey from season 4/5 One Tree Hill. You know the diabetic that saw Dan kill Keith? lol

  2. Even though the covers are so similar, I think they convey different feelings because of the looks on the models' faces.

  3. The top one does look like it might be a window and she's sitting in an chair.

    I'm with you, I think I like the second one better.

  4. The second one looks more current, the first looks like something I would have read when I was an actual YA and *ahem* that was a while ago.

  6. Story Of A Girl, if i have to choose. Both look so gloomy and sad to me.

  7. I like the second one better. The girl doesn't look so sad like the girl on the first cover.

  11. I'm voting for Story of A Girl....and I agree about how the first looks like the model is peering out of a window.

  16. I like Story of a Girl more, but I agree with pretty much everyone else - they're both a bit boring.

  17. Watch for Melissa Walker's cover story post on this - you will be surprised to find out that the top cover almost WAS the cover for Story of a Girl. :)

  18. Sara Z.- Thanks for commenting. I will DEFINITELY be watching for this. It sounds like it's going to be a great story! :)

  19. Probably Story of a Girl. I'm biased against Annie's Baby b/c it's not an actual diary (kinda like Go Ask Alice--same author).

  20. They both look like a car windows to me. I like the girl in the first one but I like everything else about the second.

  21. Thanks for commenting everyone! Big thanks to Amee for sending this to me awhile back! I cannot wait to read the Cover Story for Sara's cover!

  22. Did you check out Melisa Walker's cover story on Story of a Girl? Turns out there's another lookalike for these two covers...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ooh, I should really read ALL the comments before I comment myself! I see that lots of folks told you about that cover story, including Melissa herself!

    I do think it's interesting that the copycat was sort of deliberate in this case.

  24. And now that I've read the comments on Melissa's post, I see that you were the first to comment on it! (Slinks away.)
