Dear Cover of Warcross,
It’s time we had a talk.
You’ve been on my mind a lot since you were revealed on March 9th, 2017. And when I say a lot, I mean not a day goes by that your radiant design doesn’t cross my mind. You’ve been seared into my brain and consequently, I’ve already cleared an entire shelf on my bookshelf for your arrival on September 12th. Why, you may ask?

Let’s start with the rainbow vibes. After seeing you, I am 100% confident that THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH RAINBOWS on book covers. Not unlike the Unicorn Frappuccino, you are bold and colorful and refreshing and unlike any other book cover I’ve seen. Why are so many book covers black or blue or some unidentified shade of darkness?? I mean, no shade to my bookshelf – I love you – but I am SO ready to add this splash of white and rainbow to my collection.
OH MY GOSH I DYED MY HAIR RAINBOW. I dyed the ends. About 3 inches around the end and it took about 3 1/2 hours it get it all done, but I think I really like it! I wanted to do because I adored Warcross and the main character, Emika, has rainbow hair! I also really connected with her and this book felt so REAL to me that it made this leap off a hypothetical cliff a tad less intimidating. Hopefully brushing it out isn’t going be too too hard and the color stays in for a moderate amount of time. Warcross comes out in September and as you can tell, I would definitely recommend it. #10typesofawkward #warcross #marielu
Oh and apparently the main character has rainbow hair to match the cover?
BRB going to the hair salon.

Ok I’m back.
You are simple, you are pure. You stand out from the crowd with your effortless beauty. Really, we could all learn something from you. You’re like the opposite of extra and that’s why I love you.
I finished Warcross!!!!! It was amazing and I need to reread it because there was so much in it and I need answers. I can’t wait for the next one. Now I feel like a pigeon that’s lost inside. 🌈🎮 #warcross #bookstagram #fiction #nonfiction #marielu

Then there’s that logo. Like, WHAT?!? What even are you?? A labyrinthine mesh of letters that looks somewhat like a Rubiks cube but also kindof like a rainbow UFO but also the coolest maze of all time? I am mesmerized by you. You indicate to me that your insides will be dangerous, action-packed, and larger than life.
Everyone get hyped because #Warcross is the best book of the year! No lying, @marieluthewriter has written her best book yet. I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for Lu and @penguinteen to share it with everyone this September. Go get your pre-order on! . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookworm #currentlyreading #yabooks #scifi #marielu #penguinteen #weneeddiversebooks

And that tagline. “Player, hunter, hacker, pawn.” I’m in. I’m just in. What do you mean? How does someone go from player to hunter to hacker to pawn? I’m busy enough being just a reading addict. Clearly there’s a game involved. And at this point I’m pretty sure the game is Warcross. But what is Warcross? And who is doing the hunting?? Just tell me: should I be afraid.
And as much as you astound me, you also make total and perfect sense because your story was written by Marie Lu. She’s an utter legend (pun intended) as the superstar author of the Legend series and The Young Elites series – both prime examples of her absolutely flawless storytelling skills.
Another look at #warcross by @marieluthewriter this time without the book jacket!
