Ok, this will seem silly, but it's actually Algorithm Design by Jon Kleinberg and and Eva Tardos. The reason is there's a bird on some plant matter on the cover, and it happened to be in my trunk when I totaled a car some years ago. As a result some tree ended up going through the trunk, but the book none the less seemed fine. A few months later someone saw the book and informed me there was some plant matter on the cover and I was like "yeah, that's just the cover" but then I looked closer and there was indeed real plant on it that I hadn't noticed since them blending in with the cover plant. I removed it and it came right off, which made it all the more surprising it had lasted that long, but still cool.
Back in middle school I was nearly inseparable from books, reading my fiction under desks in class. At some point I lost what it took to stay in books, but I'm ready to hope this club brings me back.
