For fans of You’ve Got Mail, next April we have THE BOOK for you: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett.

About Alex, Approximately:

Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent half of her junior year falling for a sensitive film geek she only knows online as “Alex.” Two coasts separate them until she moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist trap, the oddball Cavern Palace Museum. Or that she’s being tormented daily by Porter Roth, a smart-alecky yet irritatingly hot museum security guard. But when Porter and Bailey are locked in the museum overnight, Bailey is forced to choose whether she should cling to a dreamy fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex. Approximately.

    I really like cover #2.

  2. Tash says:

    cover #1 because its always nice to see what the character(s) look like that you’ll be reading about.

  3. RabbitRodney says:

    Pretty close but #1 because it’s a couple on the cover. #2 seems more friendship oriented — she’s surround by two friends (and I can’t tell the gender of her friends). #2 would work for me — I would just crop if differently with only a guy and girl.

  4. I’m not a huge fan of either to be honest, but I’d pick #2 over #1.

  5. ArtemisHi says:

    You did the Sundance Film Festival-style font and symbol for cover #1 and I FREAKING LOVE THAT. So clever!

  6. Biblio says:

    I look book cover #2

  7. Whitefeather025 says:

    Cover #1 seems to fit the blurb better. Definitely my choice.

  8. andiisamar says:

    Cover #1 is more original and has to do with the geeky film stuff she likes 🙂

  9. Readingisamazing says:

    Cover #1 is better because it has nice details and it’s nice to see what the character looks like
