Cover Crush (3): Let the Sky Fall

Cover Crush is a new feature here at Booklopedia to highlight the covers that I'm currently absolutely in love with.  I know that there are multiple memes or features out there that feature covers, but I thought that it would be cool if Booklopedia had their own feature and that it should be about something that I love about books: their covers.

Today, I'm in love with the cover for Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger!

Let the Sky Fall
Vane Weston should have died in the category five tornado that killed his parents. Instead, he woke up in a pile of rubble with no memories of his past—except one: a beautiful, dark-haired girl standing in the winds. She's swept through his dreams ever since, and he clings to the hope that she's real. 

Audra is real, but she isn't human. She's a sylph, an air elemental who can walk on the wind, translate its alluring songs, even twist it into a weapon. She's also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect him at all costs.  

When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra has just days to help Vane unlock his memories. And as the storm winds gather, they start to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance growing between them.  

Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
One thing that I absolutely love about the cover is the two figures in the air... It's just so romantic and relates to the book since Audra can "walk on the wind."  I also really like the color that they chose because it has that tornado feel, like there was dust kicked up all over the place after a tornado came through.  The simple sans serif font that they used really doesn't overpower the cover, but still makes a strong statement so that you'd be able to notice it.  I've also been a fan of simple fonts lately, so other people may not like the simpleness of it as much as I do, but I think it's still cool enough that it doesn't like really distract you from anything else on the cover.  I also like how it's centered in the middle, too.

What do you think about the cover?
