UK vs US Book Covers #2

This is a way for us to compare the UK and US covers of the same book. Ever since i started Book Blogging, I was interested in how you had different covers for different countries, so I decided to post every SUNDAY a comparison of two covers.

Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair.

Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note:

I know your secret.

Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school.

Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred?

Both these covers illustrate the main focus of this novel, the red hair. Though the UK cover highlights the competition side of the novel, I feel the US cover is more interesting and definitely highlights how her hair is different from everyone else's; I feel it also conveys the secrecy surrounding her hair. This means I personally prefer the US cover.

Which one do you prefer?
