Cover Crazy: One Kick

The purpose of Cover Crazy is to feature a cover each week for us to admire its beauty. I really like this idea since there are so many great covers out there! Cover Crazy is a feature that was started by The Book Worms.

I love that the image of the girl (we think it's a girl, anyway) overwhelms the entire cover. Is her hair being swept to the side by a powerful gust of wind as I initially thought -- or is she facing away from us and running? Either way it is intriguing and sort of makes the cover seem like it's moving. And speaking of questions, is it the sun that is giving the image its glow and the wind giving it all that grit? Or is this image from damaged film?

Finally, I love the white, all caps, title font - deceptively plain, but clearly powerful, and exactly like the character at the center of this series, Kick Lannigan.

What are your thoughts on this cover?
