This week's book i'm Waiting On is....
Shine by Lauren Myracle!
I'm actually waiting for this book to arrive in the mail, also, the amazing, fantastic, spectacular Abrams books are sending me a review copy *squeeeeeeeeeel!* and the book looks so fantastic. =o
It looks really.. intense, unlike a lot of Lauren Myracle books, and so you can see for yourself, here's the summary:
When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and examines the strength of will it takes to go against everyone you know in the name of justice.
Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, drugs, and intolerance, Myracle has crafted a harrowing coming-of-age tale couched in a deeply intelligent mystery. Smart, fearless, and compassionate, this is an unforgettable work from a beloved author.
Doesn't it look fantabulous? Well, anyways,this is what i'm waiting on this Wednesday, please post links to your WoW's in the comments- I love reading them!
