Cover Love! Freaks Alive, On the Inside

* Current Giveaways*

Welcome to Cover Love! Today I am sharing another one of my library finds. This is a YA that was published back in 2007, Freaks Alive, On the Inside by Annette Curtis Klause.

There is just something about this cover that drew me to the book. I love the circus/freak show motif with the strange and creepy head shots that surround the dagger throwing show. Some of the head shots appear to be crawling or looking off the page. The center of focus is the entwined couple in the middle, the teen boy romantically holding the willowy figure of a women, his arms supporting her, and his eyes drawn to her lips. The green ring on his finger immediately draws my attention and I have to wonder if it is important to the plot.

One other fun aspect is that it resembles a segment of an old fashion Carnie poster, with the title, FREAKS, cut off on top. Kudos! I would pick this one up!
