Liar cover to be changed for publication

From Publishers Weekly, A New Look For Liar, by Karen Springen:

Proof of the power of the web: Bloomsbury Children’s Books has told Publishers Weekly exclusively that it will change the controversial cover of Justine Larbalestier’s Liar. Bloggers, commentors and the author herself had criticized the publisher’s choice of a white girl with long, straight tresses for a novel about an African-American girl with “nappy” hair.

Good. Thanks to Melangell of Pipers at the Gates of Dawn for the link.
