This past February, Elsie Chapman's 'Dualed' was released to great acclaim – the young adult novel won raves for its suspenseful depiction of a world where everyone has a perfectly identical twin, and after a certain age, only one or the other can survive. 

Now, plans have been announced for 'Divided', the second book in Chapman's dystopian saga, and we at MTV Geek have teamed with our friends at Random House to bring you an EXCLUSIVE premiere of the cover art for 'Divided', a first glimpse of the cover for the upcoming 'Dualed' paperback edition, and commentary from the author herself!

There are always two sides to every conflict, and with First Second's “Boxers & Saints,” Gene Luen Yang explores characters on opposite ends of the Boxer Rebellion. Little Bao, a Boxer, and Vibiana, a Chinese Christian convert, take turns being both protagonist and antagonist.

It’s Yang’s first historical work, and while it’s darker than fans of “American Born Chinese” might expect, it still retains multiple instances of Yang’s well-known humor and light-heartedness. Yang spoke to MTV Geek about his inspiration for this sweeping and epic new project, the historical basis for the story, his use of magical realism with Chinese gods and Joan of Arc, and what other projects he has up his sleeve.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Sweden

Earlier this year, Scholastic announced intentions to redesign the entirety of the North American "Harry Potter" book covers. They released them over the past few months, and the fandom's opinions have been rather mixed. Some people love them and think they are stunning; others think it's not that great. Others still feel as if their whole childhoods have been ruined by the changes. However, Mary GrandPre's covers aren't the only ones that are worth seeing - and it's a shame we don't see the international covers very often. Today, I saw the Swedish "Harry Potter" covers for the first time, and I have to say, they are absolutely stunning! Above, you can see "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone", or, as the rest of the world calls it, "Philosopher's Stone".
