While this book is being described as THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO for teens, and while I didn't like that book, William Richter's upcoming DARK EYES has a cover that I'm lusting after. Most people can tell you that I never have judged books by their covers and covers more often than not don't factor into my book decisions in the slightest. In fact, pretty girls in prom dresses have stopped me from buying books. I think it's font lust here. The font on this cover is amazing.
DARK EYES by William Richter comes out March 15th, 2012 from Razorbill.
Get ready for the vigilante girl detective of the next generation.
Wally was adopted from a Russian orphanage as a child and grew up in a wealthy New York City family. At fifteen, her obsessive need to rebel led her to life on the streets.
Now the sixteen-year-old is beautiful and hardened, and she's just stumbled across the possibility of discovering who she really is. She'll stop at nothing to find her birth mother before Klesko—her darkeyed father—finds her. Because Klesko will stop at nothing to reclaim the fortune Wally's mother stole from him long ago. Even if that means murdering his own blood. But Wally's had her own killer training, and she's hungry for justice.
