Waiting On Wenesday: Week 51

My pick this week is:

Dreaming of Amelia ( The Ghosts of Ashbury High in US) by Jaclyn Moriarty

Dreaming of Amelia is the story of Amelia and Riley. They're bad kids from the bad crowd at bad Brookfield High, and they've just transferred to Ashbury.

Brilliant, mysterious and probably evil, they have the rich kids at Ashbury spellbound.

But just who are Amelia and Riley?

Tantalisingly aloof, they are some how managing to have an extraordinary impact on all the HSC Ashbury students, and the staff.

Told through memoirs written as part of the gothic fiction elective in the HSC English exam,
Dreaming of Amelia is a story about ghosts, secrets, madness, passion, locked doors, femme fatales – and that terrifying moment in the final year of high school when you realise that the future's come to get you.

A brilliant new novel from Jaclyn Moriarty, whose compelling storytelling weaves lyrically around the reader. (from Macmillan's Australia's website!)


This looks soooo good! I really just can't wait to read as well as see the US cover ( the UK is featured above).

Dreaming of Amelia will be released sometime next year. Does anyone know a specific date? Thanks to A Bookshelf Monstrosity, I know know this will hit shelves April 2010! :)

Waiting on Wednesday is from an idea by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

  1. This looks interesting... especially the way it's written, through the use of "memoirs".

  10. I just found about about this book. It sounds good. The cover is nice even if it's too cute for a book on ghosts.
