Hardcover vs Paperback 158

Being a hefty, deaf newcomer almost makes Will Halpin the least popular guy at Coaler High. But when he befriends the only guy less popular than him, the dork-namic duo has the smarts and guts to figure out who knocked off the star quarterback. Will can’t hear what’s going on, but he’s a great observer. So, who did it? And why does that guy talk to his fingers? And will the beautiful girl ever notice him? (Okay, so Will’s interested in more than just murder . . .)

Those who prefer their heroes to be not-so-usual and with a side of wiseguy will gobble up this witty, geeks-rule debut.
Well I'll say this, the hardcover and paperback are definitely catering to different audiences. The paperback seems to fit better with the description but I love the Scooby-Doo vibe of the hardcover!
Thanks to Gail who suggested this H vs P!

  1. I do think both covers work, but I prefer the hardcover because that's the version I read.

  2. I agree -- the paperback seems to match the description, but the hardcover is much more eye-catching!

  3. I like the paperback better...the hardcover always read as more middle grade to me and not high school.
