Author: Meghan BrothersPublisher: Henry Holt and Co.Release date: April 2012
After years of boredom in her rural South Carolina town, Maria is thrilled when her father finally allows her to visit her estranged artist mother in New York City. She’s ready for adventure, and she soon finds herself immersed in a world of rock music and busy streets, where new people and ideas lie around every concrete corner. This is the freedom she’s always longed for—and she pushes for as much as she can get, skipping school to roam the streets, visit fancy museums, and flirt with the cute clerk at a downtown record store.
But just like her beloved New York City, Maria’s life has a darker side. Behind her mother’s carefree existence are shadowy secrets, and Maria must decide just where—and with whom—her loyalty lies.(Publisher's summary from Goodreads)
I was perusing Listopia on Goodreads yesterday and came across this book. The cover was the first thing obviously that caught my eye. I love that it doesn't have a gorgeous girl in a flowing dress or a face with big eyes, but the summary cemented things. The setting in New York and the idea of the freedom the protagonist gets when going to visit Dad, rock and roll, and oh yes the darker side of freedom that test loyalties all sound like this will be a intriguing YA addition.
What are you waiting on this week?
