I am wondering who the first and third girl are on this cover.  I'm pretty sure that the middle one is Jenna, b/c of the pink streak in her hair, but I really have no idea about these other two.  Anyone know?  I tried searching online and have given up lol.  I really liked this book!

Maybe Elodie, Anna and Chaston?  Or Jenna, Sophie, and... someone else?

Covers have gotten to be rather controversial in publishing here lately.....

Not that this has anything to do with that, but this is a revised cover of A Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.  Now, it's pretty and all, but the main character describes herself within the first few pages as "small and dark."  When the publisher was asked which character in the book this was supposed to be, they said it was "a random person."

So, frankly, I think the publishers are trying to get the attention of people who enjoyed the movie The Craft.  Looks similar to the Hex Hall cover, imo.  Even their clothes look similar....

Yeah, impossible to figure out at any rate.  I hate that!  Thanks for helping, Jenna and Kim.
