The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors
Coming out on August 21st, 2012!!
A lyrical and romantic reimaging of The Ugly Duckling for teens.
Emmeline Thistle has always had a mysterious bond with cows, beginning on the night of her birth, when the local bovines saved the infant cast aside to die in the forest. but emmeline was unaware that this bond has also given her a magical ability to transform milk into chocolate, a very valuable gift in a kingdom where chocolate is more rare and more precious than gold or jewels. Then one day Owen Oak, a dairyman’s son, teaches emmeline to churn milk into butter – and instead she creates a delicious chocolate confection that immediately makes her a target for every greedy, power-hungry person in the kingdom of Anglund. Only Owen loves emmeline for who she truly is, not her magical skill. but is his love enough to save her from the danger all around her?
Deborah Heiligman is an YALSA award winner and the premise for her upcoming novel sounds absolutely intense! I can't wait for this one!
Coming out on August 14th, 2012!!
Rachel thought she was grown up enough to accept that no one is perfect. Her parents argue, her grandmother has been acting strangely, and her best friend doesn’t want to talk to her. But none of that could have prepared her for what she overheard in her synagogue’s sanctuary.
Now Rachel’s trust in the people she loves is shattered, and her newfound cynicism leads to reckless rebellion. Her friends and family hardly recognize her, and worse, she can hardly recognize herself. But how can the adults in her life lecture her about acting with kevanah, intention, when they are constantly making such horribly wrong decisions themselves? This is a witty, honest account of navigating the daunting line between losing innocence and entering adulthood—all while figuring out who you really want to be.
I seriously have no idea when this cover came out but the title of this book and its cover pulled me in right away! I recently saw the movie Anonymous (with Jamie Campbell Bower aka Jace Hottie Wayland!!) that raises the question whether William Shakespeare was a fraud or not. Now, I just feel that I need to read more historical novels! I just love being in another time and Kissing Shakespeare does bring this up!! Time traveling and Shakespeare's theater + romance! Absolutely my kind of book! Im drooling over this one!
Coming out on August 14th, 2012!!
Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school’s staging of The Taming of the Shrew. Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide.
Fellow cast member, Stephen Langford, has other plans for Miranda. When he steps out of the backstage shadows and asks if she’d like to meet Shakespeare, Miranda thinks he’s a total nutcase. But before she can object, Stephen whisks her back to 16th century England—the world Stephen’s really from. He wants Miranda use her acting talents and modern-day charms on the young Will Shakespeare. Without her help, Stephen claims, the world will lost its greatest playwright.
Miranda isn’t convinced she’s the girl for the job. Why would Shakespeare care about her? And just who is this infuriating time traveler, Stephen Langford? Reluctantly, she agrees to help, knowing that it’s her only chance of getting back to the present and her “real” life. What Miranda doesn’t bargain for is finding true love…with no acting required.
My Dears, what do you think about these 2012 August upcoming releases?
