Wednesday, March 29, 2017

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

This week I'm waiting for...

The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke
The Balloonmakers #1
Publisher: Albert Whitman
Publication Date: September 1st, 2017
Pages: 256

Summary (from Goodreads):

When sixteen-year-old Ellie Baum accidentally time-travels via red balloon to 1988 East Berlin, she’s caught up in a conspiracy of history and magic. She meets members of an underground guild in East Berlin who use balloons and magic to help people escape over the Wall—but even to the balloon makers, Ellie’s time travel is a mystery. When it becomes clear that someone is using dark magic to change history, Ellie must risk everything—including her only way home—to stop the process.

I am all about this time travel novel and that pretty font on this cover.
