Cover Reveal: NIGHT SKY by Suzanne & Melanie Brockmann

In Night Sky, sixteen-year-old Skylar Reid is thrown into a strange world when she discovers that she has unique telekinetic and telepathic powers. After Sasha, the child she babysits, is kidnapped and believed to be murdered, Sky and her best friend Calvin are approached by Dana, a mysterious girl who has super-abilities similar to Sky’s. With the help of Dana and her sidekick Milo, the four teens — two from the rich part of town, and two living hand-to-mouth on the streets — embark on a quest to discover who killed Sasha, and to bring the killers to justice.

With Dana as Skylar’s surly and life-toughened mentor, Sky attempts to harness her powers to aid them in their quest. Complicating an already complex relationship with the older girl, Sky starts to fall for the dangerously handsome and enigmatic Milo–and begins to suspect that the attraction is mutual. But then Sky realizes that Sasha might still be alive, and the unlikely foursome’s mission becomes one of search and rescue, pitting the heroic teens against a very deadly enemy.

I snagged an ARC at BookExpo this past May and the cover is very different:

And if I'm being very honest I prefer this cover...but I can see why they wouldn't find it as dynamic or eye-catching for the YA audience.  Also it doesn't do a terribly good job of giving an idea of the contents, I'd think this was a contemporary if asked.

The new one above though...I don't like covers like that.  Off center, with people sort of "fanned" doesn't really make me want to pick up the book.  Since this is part of her non-YA universe ("Fighting Destiny") I really would have liked if they had tied the book cover types together a little better. 

How do you guys feel? Don't forget to check out the free ebook prequel releasing on August 26th "Dangerous Destiny" as well.  The book itself releases in October, but its available on NetGalley to request right now.
