Alexander (streetlightreader) | 42 comments Hello!

Can the cover of this book...:

(ISBN: 978-1474260244)

....Be replaced by the correct cover linked here?:



Also - I'm not sure if I should start a whole other thread for this - but the Bloomsbury (publisher) site ( lists the publication date of the paperback edition to be:

"February 22nd 2018"

Rather than the currently listed:

"June 29th 2017"

If this could be corrected that'd be awesome too. Thanks in advance!

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See

As mentioned by Rivka, we don't remove or overwrite covers. That said, I've added a new edition with the updated cover:

Alexander (streetlightreader) | 42 comments Thank you both! I was under the impression that the publisher changed the cover art prior to the publication of the paperback, but did so late in the process, so the hardback cover art erroneously is displayed in some places. In any case, cheers!
