We talked about covers of books with Lucy. Lucy's book cover is of a girl from the West Indies and has no top on. She look ponderous which would represent her, Lucy. Now I contrast that with the cover of Power. The cover of Power is a dark forest with a dress hanging from the tree. I think this is representative of Omishto because she is torn and is confused about who she is. Her mother is often jealous of her looks but her sister always wants to dress her up. Omishto does not want to be a "pretty" girl and wear all the dresses. I feel like the dress on the tree represents her rebellion against being a "pretty" girl. The forest that the dress hangs on is dark and ominous which is like her thoughts... because she is confused about herself.
