Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Furious by Jill Wolfson (Henry Holt and Co. BYR):
We were only three angry girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.
We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
Duh! The summary mentions mythology, and I am a giant fan of all things mythology. In fact, this is Mythology Week on my blog! I started off the week with another retelling involving the Furies, Fury by Shirley Marr, and will end with yet another Furies-retelling in Envy by Elizabeth Miles. As you can probably tell from the previous titles, I love the idea of retellings involving the Furies, and have heard good things about this one from folks who were lucky enough to get ARCs. I can’t wait to dive into Furious!
Release Date: April 16, 2013
