Wow. That is crazy cool. I wonder why asian art always seems to take that edgy, angular cartoon style? Like in graphic novels and cartoon shows etc...

I absolutely loved this book. I couldn't seem to put it down after reading each "cassette side". I'm doing a book report on it now and it asks where it takes place. I'm not really sure if it says it in the book, but where does Clay and Hannah go to high school in the book?

Glad you like the Korean cover. Even though the book's been out in the U.S. for over a year, there are still so many cool things happening all the time...such as seeing new covers designed for foreign editions. Each artist has had such a different interpretation of the book!

Ashley, I purposely left the town nameless in the book. In my mind, it's a mix of the two cities where I grew up, Arcadia and San Luis Obispo, California.

The new edition of the book comes with a map inside the jacket. For that, I needed to give the town a it's called Crestmont.

Wow! You posted the cover. I let the illustrator of the cover informed of your blog and check this post. She must be proud of this.

Will you send me your autograph image ASAP? I will put it on the end of your preface. We don't have much time.
