Luminous by Dawn MetcalfTo Be Released: July 7th, 2011
When sixteen-year-old Consuela discovers she can remove her skin, revealing a lustrous mother-of-pearl skeleton, she slips into a parallel world known as the Flow, a place inhabited by archetypal teens with extraordinary abilities. Crafting skins out of anything – air, water, feathers, fire – she is compelled to save ordinary people from dying before their time. Yet now someone is murdering them, one by one, and Consuela finds herself the focus of an intricate plot to end the Flow forever when all she really wants is to get back home, alive.
Luminous had me at the cover. But the synopsis has me anticipating the story-- this sounds truly unique, like nothing I've ever read or heard of before. Still six months to wait until it comes out... but I have a hunch the wait will be well worth it.
So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday?
