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 Pointe by Brandy Colbert (Penguin):
She’s eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.
Donovan isn’t talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn’t do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she’s been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might be worse.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I am infatuated with books involving ballet, which is hilarious because I do not have any dancing ability myself whatsoever. But there’s just something about the dedication to the sport, the way dancers live, and the actual dancing itself that I just find extremely compelling. Throw in a kidnapped friend and some secrets about his abduction and I’m definitely sold on Pointe! It doesn’t hurt that the book has an absolutely gorgeous cover, either.
Release Date: April 10, 2014
