[Waiting On Wednesday] #5

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
which Highlights the books we're eagerly anticipating!

Beth's Pick:
I feel like I'm a little bias towards this book, since I think the author is such a doll! However, I truly can't wait for this to come out and I'm so excited for Laura!

The Forgotten Ones
The Forgotten Ones - Laura Howard
Expected Publication: May 15th, 2013
Paperback, 177pgs

Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.


Kait's Pick:


Transparent - Natalie Whipple
Expected Publication May 21st 2013
Paperback 368pgs

Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.

An invisible girl is a priceless weapon. Fiona’s own father has been forcing her to do his dirty work for years—everything from spying on people to stealing cars to breaking into bank vaults.

After sixteen years, Fiona’s had enough. She and her mother flee to a small town, and for the first time in her life, Fiona feels like a normal life is within reach. But Fiona’s father isn’t giving up that easily.

Of course, he should know better than anyone: never underestimate an invisible girl.
