Riot Headline 10 Exciting Books to Read this Summer

Cover Face-off: THE FEVER by Megan Abbott

Amanda Nelson

Staff Writer

Amanda Nelson is an Executive Director of Book Riot. She lives in Richmond, VA.

The Fever, Megan Abbott’s dark and twisty tale about the panic that erupts in a small town after teenage girls start exhibiting odd symptoms of illness, doesn’t come out in paperback until next spring (May, to be precise). But the paperback cover has already been revealed, and I want to know your thoughts about it! Both covers are menacing, though the paperback is more quietly so. Which do you prefer? Vote below!
