Wonderfully arresting cover with an illustration from a book called "B is for Betsy", a children's book originally published in 1939. Alison cropped the illustration and added the red, which I think plays very nicely with the PS logo on the bottom right. There is something so disturbingly provocative about this little girl's flirty stance and those red slouchy socks.
From Harper Collins:
Inspired by Harper Lee's classic To Kill a Mockingbird, Clay's brilliantly observed and darkly funny novel follows the sudden unraveling of a suburban community after a single act of thoughtless cruelty.
