Waiting On Wednesday (12)

Hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. My WoW for this week is:

Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis
Balzer & Bray, 4/27/10

I’d love a cup of coffee. I wish she knew how pretty she was. I wish I could drop this kid in the dryer sometimes. I just want her to be happy. I hope she didn’t find out what Ben said about her. I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin…

Joy is used to hearing Whispers. She’s used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people’s deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good, to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people’s lives—especially Joy’s—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears Jessica whisper: I want to kill my Hearing dead, and kill me too if that’s what it takes, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own.

Um...what else can I say? This book sounds great! And the cover makes me want to pass out from excitement! I'm definitely going to be checking this one out at the library first thing.


  1. This sounds great. I'll add it to my wish list. Thanks for spotlighting it!

  2. The cover makes you want to pass out with excitement? Halarious and well said.

  3. Cool. I haven't heard of this one. Cool cover too.

  4. Tell yourself that even though you aren't sure of the outcome of the surgery, there's a good chance it will work out well and that you're sure he'll come through it ok.
