Finding Sue Lawson

This is a shameless plug for Sue Lawson who has a new book being released in May. This is a great story that is very close to Sue's heart. A girl, a missing father, a missing in action great grandfather, overbearing grandparents, bullying, mystery, evasion, racism, love. All these issues are interwoven to create another great Sue Lawson read. Sue's own attachment to the story? Well that's her story to tell.
I can tell the story of the cover, though. Three covers, but this was the stand out yep that's the one as soon as we saw it. Mirroring the project cover idea that hooks into Darcy's world, I think the designers got it right.For those who knows Sue's work, they already know that the proof is in the pudding and it's the pudding they'll be hanging out for.
I guess time will tell if it catches the attention of potential readers.
Any feedback on the cover? Love to hear from you.
