This week Amy has a "can't-wait-to-read" selection for you:
Twigs by Alison Ashley Formento
They call her “Twigs,” because she’ll never hit five feet tall. Although she was born early, and a stiff breeze could knock her over, Twigs has a mighty spirit. She needs it, as life throws a whole bucket of rotten luck at her: Dad’s an absentee drunk; Mom’s obsessed with her new deaf boyfriend (and Twigs can’t tell what they’re saying to each other). Little sister Marlee is trying to date her way through the entire high school; Twigs’ true love may be a long-distance loser after a single week away at college, and suddenly, older brother Matt is missing in Iraq. It all comes together when a couple of thugs in a drugstore aisle lash out, and Twigs must fight to save the life of the father who denied her.
So, I have this on my list to read in 2014 just because, as far as I know, it's not out in the UK- America get their hardback edition of Twigs in September 18th 2013. If American publishing is like the UK if there's a hardback it's either out before, or the same time as, the paperback. I've not heard of different but for a brit like me, I've found I'm going to be waiting... And probably more than just two weeks, we'll see but there's a definitely a Pre-Order button here, and Goodreads has provided the September 18th date for hardcover. Maybe you'll buy it or had an ARC? If so, let me know what you think!
