Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine highlighting upcoming books that we are eagerly anticipating.
Golden by Jessi Kirby
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 256 pages
Publication Date: May 14, 2013
Seventeen -year-old Parker Frost may be a distant relative of Robert Frost, but she has never taken the road less traveled. Valedictorian and quintessential good girl, she’s about to graduate high school without ever having kissed her crush or broken the rules. So when fate drops a mystery in her lap–one that might be the key to uncovering the truth behind a town tragedy, she decides to take a chance.
The cover of this Spring 2013 title was just revealed last week and I think it’s really gorgeous. Jessi Kirby’s books always remind me of summer, and this cover is the most summer-y yet. Ever since I read In Honor, I’ve been looking forward to more contemporary reads from Kirby, and Golden sounds terrific. I like that there is mystery and romance in this story, and am intrigued with the Robert Frost tie in.
