This week I'm waiting on...
Entangled by Cat Clarke.
Summary from Amazon: The same questions whirl around and around in my head: What does he want from me? How could I have let this happen? AM I GOING TO DIE?
17 year-old Grace Carlyle wakes up in a white room with a table, chair, pens and paper. Ethan must have brought her here. There's nothing to do but write. As she writes, with visits from the mysterious Ethan, Grace relives the last year, and faces her demons. As she describes her relationships with her gorgeous boyfriend Nat and her best friend Sal, we slowly realize that their bonds are fatefully tangled. But Grace must also face her own part in the triangle: how much is their story a result of her painful past and her passionate and wayward nature? As Grace uses every ounce of her strength to remember, has she also the generosity to forgive?
So, um, WOW.
Seriously, how intriguing is that premise? I'm absolutely loving the sound of the tangled relationships here and the whole set-up for why this character Grace is going to be telling us her story. I've been desperate to WoW this one for some time now, but in a rare show of self-restraint I forced myself to wait until I had a cover image. Which, now it's here, just so happens to be an amazing and eye-catching and gorgeous cover image. Win!
I also just have this feeling that I am going to LOVE debut novelist Cat Clarke's writing. See, I've been following her blog for some time now here, and her tweets here, and she is supremely funny and interesting.
Entangled hits UK bookstores on January 6th 2011. I can't wait.
Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
