Waiting on Wednesday- May 25, 2010

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

by Alyson Noel
Publication Release Date: August 31, 2010

From Alyson Noel's website:

Riley Bloom left her sister, Ever, in the world of the living and crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. Riley and her dog, Buttercup, have been reunited with her parents and are just settling into a nice, relaxing death when she's summoned before The Council. They let her in on a secret—the afterlife isn't just an eternity of leisure; Riley has to work. She's been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a curious boy she can't quite figure out.

Riley, Bodhi, and Buttercup return to earth for her first assignment, a Radiant Boy who's been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But he's never met Riley...


  1. Oh wow, while I have not been to happy with Noel's sequels to Evermore, I think I might like this one. I really did like Riley's character and was sad to see her go. Didn't know about this one. Thanks!

  2. This sounds a lot like Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin. Will be interesting to see if it is in actuality, or if just the summaries will be similar.
