Waiting on Wednesday : The Weird Sisters

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. My pick this week is....


The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam.
To be published January 20, 2011.

I also featured this on my Top Ten Tuesday post of 2011 books I'm anticipating. It sounds like a great story, and I just can't resist the opening line of the Goodreads description (which is reproduced below).

There is no problem that a library card can't solve.

The Andreas family is one of readers. Their father, a renowned Shakespeare professor who speaks almost entirely in verse, has named his three daughters after famous Shakespearean women. When the sisters return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, we love each other. We just don't happen to like each other very much. But the sisters soon discover that everything they've been running from-one another, their small hometown, and themselves-might offer more than they ever expected.

Only 15 more days to wait!

  3. The jacket is gorgeous and I tend to love any read about sisters, as my own is so endlessly amusing/entertaining/frustrating/difficult/lovable! Thanks for sharing.
