Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
This week, I'm waiting on...
Alice In Time by Penelope Bush.
From publishers' website: If you could revist your past, what would you see?
Things are at crisis point for fourteen-year-old Alice. Her mum is ruining her life, her dad's getting remarried, and Sasha, the most popular girl in school, hates her guts . . .
Then a bizarre accident happens, and Alice finds herself re-living her life as a seven-year-old through teenage eyes – and discovering some awkward truths. But can she use her new knowledge to change her own future?
I am one hundred percent loving this premise. But that's hardly surprising, since I'm a huge fan of those movies where a character gets to fast-forward or rewind their life and be going on thirty, seventeen once more, or just plain big. Sounds super fun, right?
Since I'm better known as Princess Impatience, I was thrilled to discover that this one won't be too long in the waiting. UK readers can expect Alice In Time in April 2010, and I'm one UK reader who is counting the days.
