Monday Cover Merriment: Payback Time

I love book covers. LOVE them – some more than others of course. I love hearing what others have to say about them.
On Mondays I merrily share some of the good ones I’ve seen, find out what version of a cover you like better or express my disappointment in a cover that could’ve, in my opinion, been better.
I love this cover because I know the boys I teach will pick this one up, and if they pick it up they may read it!
From Goodreads

Through the eyes of a distinctly non-athletic protagonist—a fat high school journalist named Mitch—veteran sports novelist Deuker reveals the surprising truth behind a mysterious football player named Angel.  When Angel shows up Lincoln High, he seems to have no past—or at least not one he is willing to discuss.  Though Mitch gets a glimpse of Angel’s incredible talent off the field, Angel rarely allows himself to shine on the field.  Is he an undercover cop, wonders Mitch?  Or an ineligible player?  In pursuit of a killer story, Mitch decides to find out just who this player is and what he’s done.  In the end, the truth surprises everyone.

  1. I really like Carl Deuker! I thought Gym Candy was an awesome read and I definitely want to read Payback Time. I can think of a whole bunch of boys who would pick it up based on the cover alone!
