Cover Release: The Elite

I haven't done one of these in a while, but I felt like I had something to say about the new cover for The Elite, which is a sequel of Cass's horrific debut, The Selection.

Title: The Elite
Series: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Publication Date: April 23, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen 
The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection.

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.
I actually really like this color. If there's one thing The Selection's got going for it, it's the covers. Some people have commented about the model looking washed out, or all the red, but I actually really like it. That dress looks like a pain to wear, though.

But that blurb. Oh, God, that blurb. "A devastating loss"? What, she lost her nail polish? Maxon decided to ignore her because she still likes her ass of an ex?

Blechhhh. I don't know if I want to read this, but some morbid part of me wants to see what happens.
