In the wake of another round of whitewashing POC YA adult book covers...called simply Coverfail Part One. To say nothing of the news that the new Harrison Ford/Brendan Fraser vehicle Extraordinary Measures completely and utterly erased the Taiwanese doctor who found the cure, Dr. Yuan-Tsong Chen, and replaced him with a completely new white character played by Harrison Ford. And while we're at it, check out this detailed and beautifully illustrated article Yellowface: A Story in Pictures. I do declare that I will post something that makes me happy. This meme has been floating around my fav haunts for the past couple of weeks.

US cover The US cover is ridiculous. The protagonist is a poor girl from the Caribbean. Why on earth is she wearing clothing and standing in a house that marks her as middle class?

UK cover is much better. And I like the way that the stance is not sexualized either as most pictures taken from that perspective tend to be.
