We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
Release: May 3, 2011
UnavailableCover: Ever since reading The Summer I Turned Pretty, this series has been one of my favorites. The books' covers have also become some of my favorite teen chick lit covers. Just as with the others, this cover is pristine and simple, but also enchanting. The white background catches your attention with its stark beauty, and the graceful, pastel title looks lovely. All in all, it perfectly captures the simplicity of summer. As for the individual elements, the green beach grass is beautifully juxtaposed against the pale white sky. Likewise, the model's white dress look gorgeous against her tan skin and dark hair. For anyone who's read It's Not Summer Without You, this dress was mentioned in the last passage of the novel, alluding to this final installment in the series. It's quick mention, as well as its being featured on the cover, brings up a lot of questions, like "Is it a wedding dress?" I guess we'll find out soon enough! Another thing to note is the absence of Beck's boys on this cover. On the previous two covers, Belly was the center of attention, but the two boys were always there in the background. Now, as Belly is finally having to make her decision, the two boys have disappeared from the cover. Between the dress and the boys' absence, this cover perfectly represents the novel.
