Waiting on Wednesday (Mar 31)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights the upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

My WoW pick this week is The Prince of Mist, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. (I first saw this spotlighted on Eating Y.A. Books!)

The description, via Amazon:

It’s war time, and the Carver family decides to leave the capital where they live and move to a small coastal village where they’ve recently bought a home. But from the minute they cross the threshold, strange things begin to happen. In that mysterious house still lurks the spirit of Jacob, the previous owners’ son, who died by drowning.

With the help of their new friend Roland, Max and Alicia Carver begin to explore the strange circumstances of that death and discover the existence of a mysterious being called the Prince of Mist–a diabolical character who has returned from the shadows to collect on a debt from the past. Soon the three friends find themselves caught up in an adventure of sunken ships and an enchanted stone garden–an adventure that will change their lives forever.

A young adult fantasy/thriller/mystery? What more could you ask for with summer coming up? 🙂 The Prince of Mist comes out May 4, 2010.

Also, make sure to check out the rest of Eating Y.A. Books–it’s a great blog that thoughtfully reviews tons of young adult lit.

What’s your Waiting on Wednesday pick?
