So, it looks like Bloomsbury is again whitewashing their book covers. What a shame.

I'm sure we all remember that Bloomsbury was responsible for the controversy regarding Liar by Justine Larbalestier and it seems that they didn't use that moment to reassess their design decisions. Unless of course all of this is a publicity stunt- take the bad press for a bit, rerelease the book with an appropriate cover, and then wait as the revenue rolls in. Yuck.

You can read more about it here or here.


  1. I intern for them now. I'm going to find out the inside scoop. This is ridiculous and just insulting.

  2. Congrats on the internship! Now go let 'em have it ;)

  3. I have an inside scoop...I think I already told one of you this and you weren't surprised.

  4. ooo I want to hear the inside scoop!
