Breaking the Spine
meant to highlight an upcoming release we're excited for!
Dutton Juvenile, 320 Pages
Expected US Release Date: January 8, 2013
A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay
When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.
Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!
When I went to the YA or Bust Tour earlier this year (recap here!), Gayle was telling us a lot about her new duet novels, Just One Day and Just One Year. I already love Gayle - her books are absolutely breathtaking magic, and she herself is so hilarious and witty and intelligent. I want to hang out with her all the time. And then the premise of these novels? I can't. I just need. All of it. Now.
It is up on Edelweiss, but I've only ever requested once on there before and was denied (I don't even remember what book it was...), so my hopes are not high for this one. Regardless, I will read this the SECOND it is available to me.
What book are you eagerly awaiting?
