Cover Comparison - Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys

As I live in the Netherlands, I sometimes run across popular novels translated into Dutch and subsequently given a different cover than the US version.  At times I honestly only recognise them by the author name as the titles can be completely different, if it's not easily literally translated.

Today's comparison is Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys:

Original Hardcover

Dutch cover: 
(Schaduw Liefde translates as Shadow Love)

Two completely different covers - I prefer the original version in terms of 'prettiness', but the Dutch version is certainly attention-grabbing.

Which do you prefer?
