Jesse Colton asked Brent Hartinger:

Are those boys on the cover of Barefoot In The City of Broken Dreams the same guys from the cover of The Thing I Didn't Know? Also, are they supposed to represent Russel and his partner or just two generic cute gay boys in love with one another? (Also, another random question: in my head, Russel looks like the boy from the cover of Geography Club, probably understandably. Does he look that way to you?)

Brent Hartinger Yup, that's Russel and Kevin. Or at least one version. And they're definitely the same models.

Since the new books are a series, I wanted the covers to all look similar. So we chose a photo shoot of one set of a models. If you'll notice, Russel is wearing the same shirt in both photos! But maybe he just likes that shirt, right? Ha!
