That depends.

In normal usage I would say not, but I suppose I should mention that -- for reasons best known to themselves -- quite a few American newspapers like to give initial capitals to every single word in a headline.

    Newspapers in the US usually follow a style manual, I think one of the more famous ones being Chicago Style Manual, and MLA. As for book titles, I'm sure each house follows their own criteria, and if one is only writing the title to a story for homework then anything goes, I guess. – Mari-Lou A May 18 '14 at 10:46
