Thoughts: This cover is like a wet dream of fantasy Haute Couture. The puckering detailing on this classic mermaid evening gown along with the fanning out of the fin dominates. It demands immediate attention! It's no wonder that besides the synopsis, this title is coveted among YA lovers and book shelf hoarders worldwide. I love EVERYTHING about this gown. Unfortunately you won't be able to find an exact duplicate outside of a true fashion house. Yet today I'd be willing to try bringing acceptable substitutes of this look to the real world...
