Looks like a caption has been added to the cover of ''Shhhhhh!''. Can anyone make it out?

According to the blog:
Quote
We?ll try to post a new bigger cover pic soon, but so you don?t go crazy waiting, the caption on the cover says:
SPECIAL EXCERPT:
DEPRIVATION HOUSE
THE NEW HARDY BOYS THRILLER!
It?s a special bonus excerpt from the Simon & Schuster Hardy Boys novel, presented to give readers of just the Papercutz graphic novels an idea of what they?re missing in the action-packed prose paperbacks!
Please let us know what you think of HB #16. Love it, hate it ? we want to know!

You'd think if they were going to deface the cover art, they'd put something more worth while, than a mention of a book that came out almost a year ago!

I've got it on order with Chapters.ca and so far I haven't received an email saying that it has shipped.

The cameo or the exert?

I was referring to the exerpt.  Deprivation House came out last May.  I would think that Simon & Schuster would maybe be trying to push Double Trouble, or even Galaxy X?  Of course, Simon & Schuster does not do things logically.

Does anyone know if Double Deception contains a preview for Galaxy X?

"what they?re missing in the action-packed prose paperbacks"

People who only read the GNs are not missing anything.

Yeah, I just go Double Deception today.  It does contain an excerpt for Galaxy X, but I can tell right away that it is another reused plot.

So I got Shhhhhh yesterday and buy the time I got home it was too late to read it. So Today after school I will. I fliped trough the book though. Didn't see Obama yet, but I saw their reacuring chacter but I dont think the person* is in much of the story. Looks like an awesome story. Also saw the exert. Much smaller font that takes up much less pages.


<<Spoiler>>
The reacuring chacter is Lindsay.
