Recreate Cover Contest/Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala

Sunday, July 11, 2010
I have always wanted to recreate a book cover and thanks to Cindy at Princess Bookie I have gotten my chance!  

Cindy is holding this contest as part of a blog tour for Holly Cupala book Tell me a Secret. Here is the actual book cover and a summary of the book...

In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda’s death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister’s world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own.

Then two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears. Stripped of her former life, Miranda must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister’s demons and her own.

In this powerful debut novel, stunning new talent Holly Cupala illuminates the dark struggle of a girl who must let go of her past to find a way into her own future.
(Summary from GoodReads)

And here is my recreation based on a few ideas that Holly gave about a white bird being a symbol and a labyrinth.


Make sure you check all the gorgeous recreations as they are simply marvelous!

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog! I really like your idea for putting the maze against the wall and the girl looks as if she's whispering a secret to the bird. Very cool!

This is really cool!

I like how you merged the white bird with the picture of the girl to make it look like she is looking directly at it!

Good job!

Whoa, that's so great! I haven't read the book yet, but I'm sure that symbolizes a lot.

Ooh! I like your cover! :D I've seen some of the entries and my cover doesn't stand a chance, but it was fun. :)

I couldn't find any decent photos with a girl and boy, and I really liked the photo I used, so...yeah. I didn't try to steal your idea!! I only just saw it.
