I chose the main picture for a darker color and the background for a warmer color, because the story was telling a popular girl in school was going to a party, but after the party she lost her life in a traffic accident, when she woke up she found out she was living on the same day again, she doesn’t understand why she was living in the same day , She trys to change the day different to see if it let the time keep going, but it didn’t work, so then she was struggling through all the days she had been in (in the same day), after all the things she disgoverd and thought she finally found out the reason why she lived in one day and understoods life was so beautiful, and that is why I chose a warm color for the background. The texts on the book cover were telling the feelings of the main character so it can let the readers understand the book more clearly and make the book more interesting.
These are the words from the poster:
The Last Book in the Universe (2000) is a science fiction novel by Rodman Philbrick Set in a cyberpunk dystopia, its protagonist and narrator is a teenage boy named Spaz who suffers from epilepsy.

video/news that is similar to the story (hyperlinks) :
I choose this photo to be my cover, is because the story [ Along walk to water ] is about kids that is finding water in the civil war, and the picture is thing that really happened in the civil war, so I chose this to be my cover picture. And the other text that is written on it is some questions that I want to ask the readers, and the question are connect with the story that I’m reading. At the end I wrote down the time that the civil war happened. The color is kind of dark because the story was not a very happy story so I use dark blue and red to be the background color.
