Same publishing house, too? Seems like a little "oops!" to me.

Brian F.

Isn't it obvious? Grace has a cold nose.

Judith Ridge

Coincidence? One is an Australian edition ("Winter of Grace"), the other the US edition of an Australian title--and they're published two years apart.


My assumption is that it's a coincidence. Funny, though!


It's NOT the same book, is it? I mean, I read the one on the right, and it did take place in Australia, as I recall... so I think that's ALREADY the Australian version. Weird.


Also check out At Face Value. No eyes in the picture but pretty much the same for the rest (though not named Grace).

Kelly Fineman

Well, it's not like they have the same eye color or hair color or . . . oh. Nevermind.


Wow. Another one that reminds me of these (but not Grace) is Danielle Joseph's Shrinking Violet cover.

Maggie Stiefvater

I think the assumption to be drawn here is that Graces are always cold. One of my forthcoming novels next year has a Grace as the main character, and it's called SHIVER (scholastic'09). So clearly, parents: if you name your child Grace, buy turtlenecks.


I'm a YA editor at Allen & Unwin in Australia, where both these books originated. But we are only responsible for the Winter of Grace cover. Judith is completely right, the Finding Grace cover is the US edition. We've done two (very different)covers for Finding Grace over the years, neither of which involves a turtleneck. (You can see them both by searching www.allenandunwin.com, if you're interested) Although... the same cannot be said for our edition of Mary Pearson's The Adoration of Jenna Fox, which I love (both the book and the cover) - it's turtleneck-a-rama.

PS I've been silently enjoying your blog for ages. It was quite thrilling to see two of our babies... ahem... books... featured.


LOL, here are the few I found that match up for this one! http://aleapopculture.blogspot.com/2008/10/lookalikes-16.html
