Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.
U.S Edition Australian Edition
UK Edition Portuguese Edition
Well let's see here.. we have Girl in dress, Girl in dress, and ...
Girl in...erm.. * coughs and blushes looking away*
Again, I get that girls in dresses are stunning and eye catching. I am not immune tho their charms, I just wish they matched up to the stories a little more!
That being said, I am torn between the Australian and UK edition, don't get me wrong: I like the US as well! the purple just didn't do it for me as much. But over all I think the UK wins, It has a more.. ethereal feel to it, though the white hair throws me a little. I like that the first three feature the girl out in the wilderness, that part at least matches up to the story! YAY :)
As for the portuguese edition... why is she naked? Ok I can maybe understand why in a far off, angels don't need to be ashamed of their bodies or.. something like that.. But this is A YA book, and .... The cover just throws me too much when I think of it that way!
