Hardcover vs Paperback 156

In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until her ex is accidently poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family. 

Sounds like an interesting story. I've always thought the Hardcover was a bit on the too simple it becomes plain side so maybe the paperback is a better choice. There isn't a whole none going on with the paperback either but it establishes the atmosphere.

Thanks to Gail who suggested this H vs P!

  1. Neither is great but I do like the chocolate on the hardcover.

  2. I like the chocolate on the hardcover, but the paperback cover is very striking.

  3. I like the Hardcover! The chocolate is nice. :)

  4. I would be more likely to pick up the paperback. But I do like the chocolate stuff :)

  5. I'm not so sure I like the paperback. It looks to SF to me which the book really isn't. Maybe I just really love the chocolate heart on the hardcover.
