Our Waiting on Wednesday pick for today is Cristin Bishara's Relativity (Walker Childrens). This is a YA sci-fi pick that seems to be quickly gaining momentum amongst book bloggers.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a meme that allows book bloggers to talk about which titles they're most looking forward to!
Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: September 10th 2013 by Walker Childrens
If Ruby Wright could have her way, her dad would never have met and married her stepmother Willow, her best friend George would be more than a friend, and her mom would still be alive. Ruby knows wishes can't come true; some things just can't be undone. Then she discovers a tree in the middle of an Ohio cornfield with a wormhole to nine alternative realities.
Suddenly, Ruby can access completely different realities, each containing variations of her life—if things had gone differently at key moments. The windshield wiper missing her mother’s throat…her big brother surviving his ill-fated birth…her father never having met Willow. Her ideal world—one with everything and everyone she wants most—could be within reach. But is there such a thing as a perfect world? What is Ruby willing to give up to find out?
We're a big fan of parallel universes and counterfactual history on the blog, so we're definitely looking forward to this title.
Relativity is Cristin Bishara's debut novel, and will be out in September from Walker Childrens. For more information, why not go check out her website?
