FAIREST OF THEM ALL : Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Fairest Of Them All is a new weekly (maybe fortnightly or monthly) thing I made up a few hours ago, where we get to compare the different covers of the same book. Whether it's UK vs US vs AUS or even foreign-er than that, like we're doing today. 
Sounds fun... maybe?
(I know this is already sort of a popular meme of a different, more boring title, but I wanted my version to have a cool name! ;) If you know of the pioneer, feel free to link me up and I'd be happy to give them the credit for the idea)

This week: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

To be honest, the model featured on the generic British cover didn't really 'wow' me whatsoever... but the girl in the Dutch version seemed to embody Samantha Kingston much more realistically. Plus I like that she's kinda upside down! 
The French cover is a little blah but I quite like the Slovakian cover for some reason...

Even though the British cover is the one we've grown to know and love, my vote for the fairest of them all goes to the Dutch cover.

Which is your favourite?

I bought this book a few months ago but haven't had a chance to read it yet.
I love the British cover and the Dutch cover best.
Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this one!
