Waiting on Wednesday

"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.

Ask Me 
by Kimberly Pauley

hitting shelves April 8th 2014 from Soho Teen

description:
Ask Aria Morse anything, and she must answer with the truth. Yet she rarely understands the cryptic words she‘s compelled to utter. Blessed—or cursed—with the power of an Oracle who cannot decipher her own predictions, she does her best to avoid anyone and everyone.

But Aria can no longer hide when Jade, one of the few girls at school who ever showed her any kindness, disappears. Any time Aria overhears a question about Jade, she inadvertently reveals something new, a clue or hint as to why Jade vanished. But like stray pieces from different puzzles, her words never present a clear picture.

Then there’s Alex, damaged and dangerous, but the first person other than Jade to stand up for her. And Will, who offers a bond that seems impossible for a girl who’s always been alone. Both were involved with Jade. Aria may be the only one who can find out what happened, but the closer she gets to solving the crime, the more she becomes a target. Not everyone wants the truth to come out.


My thoughts:  This sounds intense and amazing, and I love the idea of a girl with the powers of an Oracle.  I'm hoping for a unique and creepy mystery!

  7. Oh it does sound creepy! Is it set in a contemporary period? B/c that would be interesting to see how powers of an Oracle is accepted/used since we only really see in historical context. Awesome pick, thanks for sharing!

  11. Ooh I haven't heard of this before! But I think a girl with Oracle powers would be pretty awesome too. I've read Sucks to Be Me by this author and enjoyed it, so will definitely be giving this a go. Great pick!
