Waiting on Wednesday: Shadows of Sherwood by Kekla Magoon

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:

Shadows of Sherwood by Kekla Magoon

Expected Release Date: August 4, 2015

The night her parents disappear, twelve-year-old Robyn Loxley must learn to fend for herself. Her home, Nott City, has been taken over by a harsh governor, Ignomus Crown. After fleeing for her life, Robyn has no choice but to join a band of strangers-misfit kids, each with their own special talent for mischief. Setting out to right the wrongs of Crown’s merciless government, they take their outlaw status in stride. But Robyn can’t rest until she finds her parents. As she pieces together clues from the night they disappeared, Robyn learns that her destiny is tied to the future of Nott City in ways she never expected.

I love Kekla Magoon and will basically read anything she puts out, even if it’s a retelling of Robin Hood (which isn’t my favorite story, per se).  I think Magoon is doing great things for children’s and YA literature, and I can’t wait to see what is surely a fresh take on an old tale.

What are you waiting on this week?
