#ReadADessen: The Many Faces of That Summer

Everyone has a favorite Sarah Dessen book. What's yours?

Hey there, again! On Monday, I introduced you to a little blog campaign, and today, I'm bringing you the second in a series of posts about Sarah Dessen and her books. This spring and summer, many readers across the world are awaiting Sarah Dessen's latest book.

So what are we doing? Celebrating, duh! Many different bloggers will be featuring their favorite Sarah Dessen books on their blogs over the next few weeks as we wait for Once and For All.

The Many Faces of That Summer

That Summer by Sarah Dessen has been around for almost twenty-one years now! (Seriously... if it were a person, she'd be eagerly waiting for her 21st birthday!) In the two decades that That Summer has been on bookstore and library shelves, it's gone over a few makeovers. 
I thought it would be fun to revisit some of the covers of That Summer.

Second Makeover and Current Cover Art Debuted in the 2010s

Okay... I know that as a teacher and avid reader, I'm supposed to say that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but as a serious reader (and library assistant), I know that a book's cover can really make someone pick up the book. 

Me... I own two copies of the most recent cover art, but I really like the second cover. There's just something about the playfulness of it that makes me really think of it as a fun summer book!

So now I want you to sound off in the comments below and tell me which cover you like the most! (And please feel free to choose from the many foreign editions out there, as well!)
