This Week's YA Highway Road Trip Topic:
What are your all-time favorite book covers?

I do think the face of connecting has changed with technology. Today, we all probably know someone we met on the internet better than we know our neighbors.
For all these changes, connecting does matter, and being open to connections matters most. It's not without risks, but the rewards are much greater.
What about you? Any cover loves or thoughts on connection to share?
