Waiting on Wednesday: 5/30/12

This meme tells about those books that we are waiting patiently (sometimes not so patiently) for! 

This week I am waiting on a book from a debut author, Lisa M. Basso. Its about my favorite genre, Paranormal Romance, that features my favorite type of paranormal, angels. And this one sounds reallllly good. 

A Shimmer of Angels

A compelling and spirited debut from Lisa M. Basso in which sixteen-year-old Rayna Evans has spent the last three years locked away in a mental institution for seeing angels. Intent on remaining free, she ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But when her hallucinations begin showing up at school, can Rayna keep her job, her sanity and keep students from dying at the hand of angels she can’t admit to seeing?

Psychiatry, fantasy and real life come together in A Shimmer of Angels, as a young girl struggles with identity, secrets and confronting her greatest fears. A Shimmer of Angels is a wonderful read for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, or perhaps has felt like giving up entirely. It touches on themes of suicide, ostracism and emotional pain. The author, personally exposed to suicide through the death of her beloved brother, will donate a percentage of sales of this novel to a local suicide prevention and outreach program in San Francisco, California.

Expected Publication: November 20, 2012 by Month9Books, LLC
