For those of you who aren't familiar with the book here is the blurb:
He is out there, holding his breath as I hold mine. Ears pricked, eyes scouring the darkness. I can sense him there waiting, just a few feet away . . .
When aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying fora wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston's elite, she's hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda.
What she doesn't count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets; falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy; and falling out with a dangerous serial killer . . .
You can Sarah Alderson's website for more information and if you can read my review of The Sound here.
Now let's have a look at the covers:
I'm actually finding it really difficult to pick a favourite out of these two covers. I love the colouring of the UK cover - it's just so pretty to look at! - but I think I prefer the beach picture and the girl's dress in the US cover. I also like the US tag line "The truth always comes to the surface . . ."
Which cover do you prefer? What do you think of the trailer? Have you already read The Sound? If so I'd love to know what you thought of it so leave me a link to your review in the comments and I'll come and check it out.
