"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
Spirit and Dust
by Rosemary Clement-Moore
hitting shelves May 13, 2013 from Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Speaking to the dead is no new thing for Daisy Goodnight. The living, on the other hand, can occasionally be a problem. Especially when they knock you out, kidnap you, and force you to be their magical police dog.
Donald Maguire—mob boss, extraordinaire—has a missing daughter and Daisy is his first choice to track her down. But he didn't actually ask her for help. When she woke up in his guest bedroom, she was told. But why her? And who—or what—in the world is the Black Jackal?
My thoughts: Ok, so I know this almost a year away from coming out, but GUYS...It's Rosemary Clement-Moore. Did you read Texas Gothic? It was awesome. Once of my faves last year. So I am very excited to see more from this author. And this premise looks right up my alley. :)
