Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. My WoW pick today is:
Authors: Andrea Cremer & David Levithan
Release Date: May 7, 2013
Age group: Young Adult
Genre: Fantasy, Contemporary
Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.
I like the idea of mixing contemporary and fantasy in one book. And invisibility has always been my favorite superpower! It's so cool having the power to be invisible
and spy on people. *evil grin* Although in Stephen's case, his invisibility is brought on by a curse. But still...
So what are YOU, oh lovely readers, waiting on? Let me know and leave your links in the comments! ^_^
