“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: William Harlan Richter
♡ Release Date: March 2012 (North America)
♡ Publisher: Razorbill
♡ Synopsis: Get ready for the vigilante girl detective of the next generation. Wally was adopted from a Russian orphanage as a child and grew up in a wealthy New York City family. At fifteen, her obsessive need to rebel led her to life on the streets.
Now the sixteen-year-old is beautiful and hardened, and she’s just stumbled across the possibility of discovering who she really is. She’ll stop at nothing to find her birth mother before Klesko—her darkeyed father—finds her. Because Klesko will stop at nothing to reclaim the fortune Wally’s mother stole from him long ago. Even if that means murdering his own blood. But Wally’s had her own killer training, and she’s hungry for justice.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens, this debut thriller introduces our next big series heroine!
♡ Why Am I Waiting On It?: I’ll admit that the “Dragon Tattoo” part is a deep hook for me, seeing as how much I adore the “Millennium” trilogy. I seriously can’t wait for this book, and sincerely hope that it lives up to the hype. And I’ll admit, I have a thing for vigilante girl justice. ❤
