The latest cover re-creation contest asks participants to redesign the cover of Losing Faith by Denise Jaden. I love the original cover so much that it's hard to think about doing a better job than the original. But, after about an hour of searching, I think I found an image and a design that I can live with.

So, here's my rationale for my cover. I read the description of the plot of this book and thought that it sounded a bit like an unsolved mystery. I think that this delicate, x-ray photo of this flower sort of gives the impression that something is being revealed. And, I love the way that the black and white color scheme (I played with the colors) makes the flower look ethereal. It's purty and mysterious. Good combination, I think!
