Waiting on Wednesday #233

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description:  

From New York Times bestseller Lauren DeStefano comes a gorgeous tale of friendship found and fought for against a haunting danger.

Lionel is a wild boy, who doesn’t much like to be around other people. He’d rather be a purring cat or a wolf stalking the woods.

Marybeth is a nice girl. She doesn’t need to be told to comb her hair or brush her teeth, and she’s kind to everyone at the orphanage . . . Lionel most of all.

Different though they are, Lionel and Marybeth are best friends in a world that has forgotten about them. So when a mysterious blue spirit possesses Marybeth—and starts to take control—they know they must stop it before the real Marybeth fades away forever.

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano comes a haunting tale of friendship, love, and the magic of childhood . . . and what lies beyond, just right for readers of Serafina and the Black Cloak.

Hardcover, 208 pages
Expected publication: September 13th 2016 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Ah, I am going to love this book so much. And I simply cannot wait to read it. I adored the other middle grade book by Lauren, A Curious Tale of the In-Between. It was amazing. I must admit that I thought she was writing a sequel to it. So I'm a bit disappointed that she wasn't. But I'm also so excited for this book :D Because it looks gorgeous. And it sounds aaamazing. Can't wait to meet these kids. And love them.
What are you waiting for on this peculiar Wednesday?
