Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it is a weekly feature where bloggers share what they are excited to read next.
Here is my pick this week:
Summary from Goodreads:
Known amongst locals as
the daughter of a brothel prostitute, Josie wants more out of life than
The Big Easy has to offer. She devises a plan to get out, but a
mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie tangled in an investigation
that will challenge her allegiance to her mother, her conscience, and
Willie Woodley, the brusque madam on Conti Street. Caught between the
dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld, New Orleans
lures Josie in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn,
and escalating to the ultimate test.
With characters as
captivating as her international bestselling novel, "Between Shades of
Gray," Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets, lies,
and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny.
This book comes out February 13th, 2012. I loved Between Shades of Gray and this summary sounds just as good. Can't wait!
