Waiting on Wednesday: Week 36

My pick this week is:

Tangled by Carolyn Mackler

Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen are all at Paradise—the resort in the Caribbean, that is—for different reasons, but in Paradise their lives become tangled together in ways none of them can predict. Over the course of four months, through four voices and four stories, what happened in Paradise will change them all.

In this extraordinary novel, the Printz Honor–winning author brings us her most accomplished work yet. Tangled is a story of the secrets we keep, the risks we take, and the things we do for love.

My Thoughts or Let's Count The Reasons On Why I Should Have This:

  • It's by Carolyn Mackler, do I need a better reason. I really don't think she has had a book published since '07.
  • The cover is so pretty.
  • The premise sounds interesting. I definitly want to read about the characters secrets, the things they do for love, and the risks they take.
  • Daniel Handler ( Lemony Snicket) has nothing but praise for this novel : " Well, there goes your weekend. You’ve just picked up Carolyn Mackler’s Tangled and now you’ll spend the next two days doing nothing but racing through her multilayered novel, following the coincidences and collisions between young people who are thrilled and sad, brave and scared, cracking up and cracking each other up, as they try to figure out who they are and where they’re going. Cancel your plans. You’re not going to want to be anywhere else.”

Tangled will be realeased December 29, 2009.
