Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick is Kiss the Morning Star by Elissa Hoole, coming April 28, 2012 from Marshall Cavendish.
It’s a journey both outward and inward. Through the Badlands and encounters with predatory men and buffalo. A crazy bus ride to Mexico with a bunch of hymn-singing missionaries. Facing death, naked in the forest with an enraged grizzly bear . . . Gradually, Anna realizes that this is a voyage of discovery into her own self, her own silent pain – and into the tangled history that she and Kat share. What is love? What is sexual identity? And how do you find a way forward into a new future – a way to declare openly and without fear all that lies within you?
My Thoughts: I am always game for a road trip book. And then books that really question love and sexuality and all that? Yep. Count me in. I suspect this book will be filled with both laughter and tears, and many, many shenanigans. I mean, really, naked in the woods and facing death by grizzly? Yes please. I love watching characters face their past and figure things out, and this one sounds like a great character driven book with plenty of outside stuff going on to push things along the way. Also, this cover? I love it. It's simple yet elegant, but also holds a lot of fun and promise in it.
