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:
Picture Me Gone by Meg Rosoff
Expected Release Date: October 1, 2013
Printz Award-winning author Meg Rosoff’s latest novel is a gorgeous and unforgettable page-turner about the relationship between parents and children, love and loss.
Mila has an exceptional talent for reading a room—sensing hidden facts and unspoken emotions from clues that others overlook. So when her father’s best friend, Matthew, goes missing from his upstate New York home, Mila and her beloved father travel from London to find him. She collects information about Matthew from his belongings, from his wife and baby, from the dog he left behind and from the ghosts of his past—slowly piecing together the story everyone else has missed. But just when she’s closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best.
(summary via Goodreads)
Meg Rosoff’s how i live now is probably one of my favorite books of all time, so it’s a given that I’d be excited about any of her other books. This one looks great for a number of reasons: the summary doesn’t give too much away, the cover is bizarrely interesting looking, and it looks like a twisty little mystery story. So yeah, I’m pretty excited for this one.
What are you waiting on this week?
