Zora Neale Hurston goes Nancy Drew

The Times has posted an article about Zora and Me, a new kids' novel featuring a fictionalized version of Harlem Renaissance writer Zora Neale Hurston as a girl detective. Written by Victoria Bond and T.R. Simon, the novel is the first book not written by Hurston to be endorsed by the Zora Neale Hurston Trust, an organization created in 2002 dedicated to bringing Hurston’s work to a larger audience.

I'm interested in checking out the book, but I really don't care for that cover. Couldn't they have chosen something less hokey?
