Cover Compare + Contrast: Amy and Rogers Epic Detour

Which Cover do you like best?
I think I like the UK one, it's very whimsical, I always tend to like the illustrated fronts; on the other hand, I do have a soft spot for the real covers - pictures of real people...
I think that if this book was really good, I would end up buying both copies!

 Amy Curry thinks her life sucks. Her mom decides to move from California to Connecticut to start anew—just in time for Amy's senior year. Her dad recently died in a car accident. So Amy embarks on a road trip to escape from it all, driving cross-country from the home she's always known toward her new life. Joining Amy on the road trip is Roger, the son of Amy's mother's old friend. Amy hasn’t seen him in years, and she is less than thrilled to be driving across the country with a guy she barely knows. So she's surprised to find that she is developing a crush on him. At the same time, she’s coming to terms with her father’s death and how to put her own life back together after the accident. Told in traditional narrative as well as scraps from the road—diner napkins, motel receipts, postcards—this is the story of one girl's journey to find herself.

I think it sounds good, I shall have to track down a copy!

The book really is good! I also love the little details inside, like photos of the places they were or receipts or e-mails and all that stuff!
btw I own the UK copy, which I really love :)
