Waiting on Wednesday (8)

WoW

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme highlights some of the books whose releases bloggers are most anticipating this year.

This week I’m hotly anticipating…

the Edge of Nowhere

The Edge of Nowhere by Elizabeth George

Expected Publication: September 4th 2012 by Viking Juvenile

Whidbey Island may be only a ferry ride from Seattle, but it’s a world apart. When Becca King arrives there, she doesn’t suspect the island will become her home for the next four years. Put at risk by her ability to hear “whispers”–the thoughts of others–Becca is on the run from her stepfather, whose criminal activities she has discovered. Stranded and alone, Becca is soon befriended by Derric, a Ugandon orphan adopted by a local family; Seth, a kindhearted musician and high school dropout; Debbie, a recovering alcoholic who takes her in; and Diana, with whom Becca shares a mysterious psychic connection.

This compelling coming-of-age story, the first of an ongoing sequence of books set on Whidbey Island, has elements of mystery, the paranormal, and romance. Elizabeth George, bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley crime novels, brings her elegant style, intricate plotting, incisive characterization, and top-notch storytelling to her first book for teens.

This week I’m showing a book that we won’t have long to wait because every time I see a book on WoW it seems to be months or even years away before it’s being published and I’m just eager to get the book now. This actually sounds thoroughly exciting and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

What’s your WoW?

  3. I thought this author’s name sounded familiar. I’ve watched and loved the Inspector Lynley series. I didn’t know she was writing a YA novel. I can’t wait to get my hand on this either. Great pick Livvy! I’m adding this one to my TBR. 🙂

      Ahhh, I haven’t read any of her Inspector Lynley books and didn’t really watch the series, but my mum loved it, so I’ll be excited to see her YA novel! Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Thanks for dropping by, I really appreciate every single view. If you're a fellow blogger I'll return follows/comments. Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone because of time constraints, but I appreciate the thought.
