Funky Cover Friday

I recently reviewed The House I Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell (read review here) and I adore the cover. It’s a perfect representation of the fragility of life and of the balance between contentment and devastation.The egg is the perfect symbol for the Bird family. Death and anger (at oneself and others) threaten to overwhelm the family. The lives that they create are strong until devastation occurs. Then their lives become easily shattered and pulled apart at the slightest crack. Set against the welcoming backdrop of homely floral wall paper, this cover represents the expectations  that the family strives for, but cannot meet.



What do you think of Jewell’s cover? Is there an image that you think better represents the story?
