Waiting on Wednesday

by Cynthia Hand
Hardcover, 440 pages
ISBN13: 9780061996160

To Be Released: January 4, 2011

In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees. . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what it is, though, isn't easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place--and out of place, at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make--between honesty and deciet, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

I have to say: After reading Halo (Alexandra Adornetto), I'm needing some redemption in the "angels" department. I don't know if this will be it, but I'm willing to try.

Sounds like a good pick!

I just finished Halo, and I'm also needing some redemption in the angels department after that one. I just didn't enjoy it like I thought I would.

I'm following your blog now - I thought I was already as I have you as a friend on goodreads!

My WoW pick is up on my blog:
