Cornelia Funke's Inkheart covers (http://www.amazon.com/Inkheart-Trilogy-e...); Kristin Cashore's Graceling cover (http://www.amazon.com/Graceling-ebook/dp...). I like intricate framing with a clean design in the center, but I'm open to anything that captures the essence of the book.

Aine and her blind younger brother Spenser arent certain why their memories contain so many gaps. Most troubling is why their mother disappeared and why they cannot recall early details about Grandma Glori, the reclusive woman who has raised them the last five years. When Glori goes missing and a blue-eyed monster named Biblos begins hunting them, they discover their only chance at survival lies in a mysterious and striking young man named Gilgamesh, who reveals truths they can barely grasp: Glori wasnt really their grandmother, faeries are real, and somehow, theyve been living inside To Kill a Mockingbird.
Joined by Spensers friend Dill, Aine, Spenser, and Gilgamesh begin their strange and dangerous odyssey. Aine must choose between a family she doesnt remember and her growing attraction to Gilgamesh as more beloved novels come to lifeThe Time Machine, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. Only by entering stories will they learn the truth of their heritage, if they can stay alive.
