Waiting on Wednesday: Transparent by Natalie Whipple

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Transparent by Natalie Whipple

Expected Release Date: May 1, 2013

Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.

An invisible girl is a priceless weapon. Fiona’s own father has been forcing her to do his dirty work for years—everything from spying on people to stealing cars to breaking into bank vaults.

After sixteen years, Fiona’s had enough. She and her mother flee to a small town, and for the first time in her life, Fiona feels like a normal life is within reach. But Fiona’s father isn’t giving up that easily.

Of course, he should know better than anyone: never underestimate an invisible girl.

(summary via Goodreads)

This one looks like a totally fun paranormal YA fiction title for the spring.  It’s not necessarily in my most-read genre, but it looks like something that’s grounded enough in reality that I’ll enjoy it.  I can’t figure out why Whipple’s name is so familiar, as this is her first YA novel, but it is.  I’m really looking forward to this one.  It looks like it’s going to be the kind of frothy fun YA novel I love to read in the spring and summer.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I’m with you- this does look like fun, even though I don’t read tons of paranormal either. The cover is so eye-catching and colorful too. Great WoW!
