Many of you may be familiar with the cover to Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst, as this mass-market edition was given away on many blogs last year (I won a copy from Bethany). However, it turns out the image used on the cover also appears on The Song Reader by Lisa Tucker (which was published in 2003!). I like the way they inserted (or removed) the suitcase on one of the covers!
Another similar image is found on the covers of Good Harbor by Anita Diamant and the Italian translation of The Saving Graces by Patricia Gaffney. (Amiche per la vita literally means “friends for life.”) I wonder if translations are more likely to use copycat covers? This isn’t the first time I’ve come across a translation that uses the same cover as another book.
