Publisher: Square Fish/Macmillan
For one thing, this cover is made of AWESOME. I love the fact that the heart is made out of two fingerprints, one in black, the other in red. One in life, the other in death. I love that both the title COLD HANDS, WARM HEART and the tagline "sudden death ... sudden life" mimic this color scheme so perfectly, but in mirror image. I like the uneven slant of the letters in both the title and author's name. That alone makes me want this!
Then, the summary. I've never heard of someone born with a heart on the wrong side of his/her body before. It makes me want to know more immediately. I like that one of the main characters is a competitive gymnast, too. Gymnastics has always intrigued me (Yes, I do watch MAKE IT OR BREAK IT and was excited to see a TV show about gymnastics... And I'm looking forward to the 2012 Olympic coverage in London!). I'm so intrigued by these two different characters and want to see how "their worlds collide," as promised in the summary.
I've never heard of this book before, but apparently it came out in 2009. It's been repackaged and will finally be coming out in paperback and ebook form this fall. I just saw a local library listing it and got really excited, though I'm also sad that the original cover isn't as amazing.
Oh, how I want to read this one!! Have any of you read it?
What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
