Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Appropriate for Valentine’s Day, this cover uses creative street signage and hearts to a perfect degree. With a colorful blurred-out cityscape serving as background, readers are immediately transported to an urban setting of love and youth. Both the book’s title and authors make clever use of the street signs, and one must note that these signs are in focus against the blurry city. The final lovely touch comes from the decoration of hearts, both as a walk sign and as scattering snowflakes. This design spectacularly showcases a New York romance for young adults.
