Cover Re-design!

To kick off the dystopian celebration going 'round the blogosphere Andrea @ Loud Words and Sounds is having a cover-redesign contest.  And you know me.  They're like chocolate for me.  Well...maybe not quite as addicting but you get my drift.  This contest is for Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky.  And I am completely PSYCHED to read this!  Sounds absolutely fabulous!  Submissions are due by April 4th so get your creative juices flowing and work some cover magic!  Here's the original cover and synopsis followed by my entry! Opinions? 

Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her. Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking. In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.

And here's mine!

Ooo I like this. It's like as if she's peeking out from behind the digital life. You probably made it that way so I'll shut up now =P

It is epic though lol
