More Cover Fail!

My god, the world is full of cover fail these days.  For those of you who, like me, read Flowers in the Attic at WAY TOO YOUNG AN AGE, is this or is this not the creepiest cover you can imagine for this book?  Is this or is this not a VERY MISLEADING way to sell this book to a new generation of twelve-year-olds?

For those of you who haven't read the book, that lovely blonde couple canoodling on the cover?  They're brother and sister.  Yeah.  Sit with that for a minute, and wonder if maybe I should not have read that book at twelve, and then wonder if maybe this cover does not understand what a delightful, depraved gothic book this is.
