This week I’m hotly anticipating…
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?
