Hardcover vs Paperback 88

Girlfriend Material by Melissa Kantor




If Kate were Lady Brett Ashley, the devastating heroine of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, she'd spend her summers careering around the Riviera in her coup, breaking hearts by the dozen--because why not? In reality, Kate's never even had a boyfriend, and she'll be spending the summer abetting her mom's lame ploy to make her dad jealous: running off to Cape Cod and crashing at the seaside home of her wealthy friends, the Cooper-Melnicks. To add to the shame, the Cooper-Melnicks' gorgeous daughter is a bit like Lady Brett, and she seems less than thrilled to hang out with her new houseguest. Any dreams Kate once had of a perfect summer are ruined.
That is, until Sarah's cute, witty friend Adam starts drawing Kate into the fold--and seems intrigued. With Adam around, Kate feels like she just might have a bit of heart-breaker potential after all. But when a breezy summer romance quickly grows more complicated, can Kate keep pretending her relationship with Adam is just a carefree fling? Or will she take the risk and tell him her real feelings? Suddenly Kate is asking herself a question she thought she'd never stoop to: Is she girlfriend material?

Well let's see here, the hardcover I used in a lookalike a while back but I think it does more for me than the paperback. Usually I like people on it, face wise but it's just so smack in the middle and there is barely any contrast in the photo. The girl does look how I would imagine her to look from the summary though!

Hardcover or Paperback?

Have you spotted a Hardcover vs. Paperback you would like to contribute? Send me an email!


  1. I'm going with the HB. The model just looks so stiff on the PB & her eyes seem a little vacant.

  2. oh, hardcover all the way. i don't like the stock girl on the paperback.

  3. I prefer the hardcover. It's much more intriguing to me for some reason--Maybe because there's a couple?

  4. I like the hardcover too.

  5. Hardcover is definitely nicer.

  6. I prefer the hardcover, but they both look alright to me.

  7. The hardcover is just OK, but I like it better than the paperback.
