Waiting On Wednesday: Week 39

My pick this week is:

The Girl with the Mermaid Hair by Delia Ephron

Sukie Jamieson is obsessed with her appearance. She checks her reflection in windows, spoons, car chrome—anything available. So when her mother gives her a full-length mirror that once belonged to her grandmother, Sukie is thrilled. So thrilled that she doesn’t listen to her mother’s warning: "This mirror will be your best friend and worst enemy.” Because mirrors, as Sukie discovers, show not only the faraway truth but the truth close up. And finding out that close-up truth changes people. Often forever.

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

  • It sounds fantastic! I love the whole mirror angle they are using.
  • The cover is stunning!

The Girl with the Mermaid Hair will be released January 5, 2010.

  6. I think this was the cover that was going to be on "Mark" (or Marked? I'm blanking), but it couldn't because these guys had already bought it.

    Thanks for the WoW!
