Lois Duncan is on her own cover...

I've already become slightly obsessed with the Lizzie Skurnick Books reissues of classic YA fiction - the first of these, Lois Duncan's DEBUTANTE HILL - but until this interview, I had no idea the slightly-hostile looking girl in the foreground of the book cover was Duncan herself - at sixteen. Pissed, because some "creepy boy" was driving her Jeep.

Sixteen, and pouting in bright pink, Technicolor life. What a cool snapshot of a moment in time. Too bad photography from the late eighties could never make me look that awesome.

Thanks for that link--Lois Duncan was one of the authors whose books I always picked up!
