Waiting on Wednesday 9/1

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I am particularly excited for...

Title: The Winds of Heaven
Author: Judith Clarke
Release Date: September 28, 2010


Clementine thinks her cousin Fan is everything she could never be: beautiful, imaginitive, wild. The girls promise to be best friends and sisters after the summer is over, but Clementine's life in the city is different from Fan's life in dusty Lake Conapaira.And Fan is looking for something, though neither she nor Clementine knows what it is.

Printz Honor Winner Judith Clarke delivers a compassionate, compelling novel with the story of friendship between two young women, and of the small tragedies that tear them apart from each other and from themselves.

Taken from GoodReads.

I've never read anything by Judith Clarke before, and I think that might just be a crime. Either way, I think the premise of The Winds of Heaven sounds both heartfelt and promising, albeit extremely vague. I love books that can make you feel a story, rather than just read about it, so I'm excited to see what this presents. Besides, who can resist a colourful cover that's as beautiful as that? Certainly not me...we all know I'm a bit of a cover whore geek.

  7. Sometimes a vague summary can be a good thing, the publishers must not want to spoil the awesomeness ;) I love the cover too...I would probably pick it up based on that alone.

  11. argh! i have this on my bedside right now, just drowing in my TBR pile. and I've read most (all?) her other books and loved her when i was a teen - so it should be an awesome read...

    I like the US cover way better than our Australian cover though.
