Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming titles we're highly anticipating.
This week's pick is:
Ink by Amanda Sun
Series: The Paper Gods, #1
Expected publication: June 25th, 2013
I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look. Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of girl lying on a bench. A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sick- ness. And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine. On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building. Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets. Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.
Why: Again, I really don't think I need to explain why. xD I think after reading that blurb, you desperately want to read this book yourself. I'm so extremely excited for this book, I can't even tell you.
Feel free to share your WoW's down in the comments!
