Monday Cover Love: Banished

I love book covers.  LOVE THEM! On Mondays I take time to share some of my favorites or, occasionally, one that I hoped had been better. 
Today I’m sharing:
I love this cover.  It catches my eye everytime I see it.  Actually though, the first time I saw it, I thought it was the cover for Extras by Scott Westerfeld.  It is very similiar.  This one has the pretty scroll-work that adds to it as well as the blue eye that just pops.

I also asked my 7th graders what they thought of it.  Here is what they said:
Looks creepy (said many many times)
Looks girly
Dark yet attractive
Her eyes stand out
Very interesting
Sort of disturbing to my eyes
So as you can see it was a pretty mixed bag.  The ones that new the Extras book thought they looked the same as well.
Here’s Extras to compare:
