Gorgeous... I had a near perfect copy I sold to Jon Warren. I'll get another at some point...

A few years after selling I started to buy paperbacks again and I’ve reacquired most of what I really wanted back, including a very nice copy of Reform School Girl that is only slightly lesser than the one I had. I don’t think I’ve ever posted it here, maybe I’ll dig it out.

Well, you're doing a lot better than me. I've never had a copy, nor a lot of the JD stuff you post.  (worship)

No,

I wish, I had most of them back in the day. Just got this one.

Sweet books! Is that the orignal artwork ?

Thanks. That scan is so dark and I'm not getting much luck changing the settings. I think my scanner is finally giving out on flat items. Here's a twofer with the other baddest "...girl" out there.... Much more representative of the color palette.

Yes, not mine though. It was auctioned off a few years ago and known for being used on this book which you can find still.

Nice. I see Jon Bernthal as the leering hood and a young Nicole Kidman as the blonde.

Or perhaps January Jones dirtied up a bit as the blonde...  :cloud9:
