Recreate the Cover Contest: Matched by Ally Condie

Squeaky Books is hosting a redesign the cover contest for Ally Condie's Matched. I had to enter something, as this is one of my new favorite YA series, but I had a seriously difficult time getting a concept that I liked.

Mostly, I wanted to capture the matching concept of the book, but portray it as disturbing rather than romantic. I also wanted to keep the color green on the cover somehow, because that was the color Cassia chose for her dress in the book. I am not super happy with my recreation, but am tired and need to go to bed. So, I'll probably dream of much better covers all night long. Oh well.

Here is my rushed recreation:

Feel free to share a link to your covers! I'd love to see some more ideas.


  1. Hi, Mrs. DeRaps - I just dropped by your blog to get the URL to share with a friend, and I love your recreated cover! Nice job. My niece got an ARC of this book and really enjoyed it.

  2. I always love your covers! I haven't read Matched yet, but I've got it and I'm more excited to read it now that I've seen your re-design!

  3. I think this is great...I just read the book. Sometimes simple is best.
