Cover Face-Off: IF I WAS YOUR GIRL by Meredith Russo

It’s time to pit cover against cover again. This time we have Meredith Russo’s If I Was Your Girl, a book many Rioters loved. It’s hard not to fall in love with the main character Amanda who moves in with her father and starts a new school after her previous school becomes unsafe. It’s a wonderful, important, coming-of-age novel and I have never rooted harder for a character.

The original cover (hardback) is a photograph of model Kira Conley who has managed to perfectly capture the vulnerability lodged inside teen girls. More importantly it’s a cover with a transgender woman, on a book written by a transgender woman, with a transgender girl main character.

The upcoming paperback has swapped the photograph of a real girl and gone with a Venn diagram illustration instead.
