Waiting On Wednesday! (Dec. 30, 2009)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Turning Book 1: What Curiosity Kills by Helen Ellis
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: May 1, 2010
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Pages: 288

Summary: Mary Richards is a normal sixteen-year-old girl living in Manhattan. Well, almost normal. She goes to private school on the Upper East Side, having been saved from a life of squalor by an adoptive family. But she's also slowly transforming into a cat. Struggling to hide her physical metamorphosis, Mary discovers that she isn't alone. A whole race of cat people prowls the streets of Manhattan at night, including Mary's long-time crush, Nick. Aside from heightened feline senses, hanging out with Nick is the best thing about discovering her inner kitty. But Mary's transformation is special and could decide the outcome of a citywide turf war. She must decide whether to embrace her powerful feline side and become a pack leader or go back to being a normal teenage girl. Can she land on her feet or will curiosity be her downfall?

My Thoughts: I love the sound of this book, a possible modern twist on Catwoman? I really look forward to its release! *Meow*

When I hear cats in any books, I think of our famous blogger Sharon haha. But interesting plot, a little different than our usual YA.
