This week, I'm waiting for...
We meet Liesl the night
after the day her young father has died. That same day she is visited by
a ghost, Po, an eight year old boy who lives on the other side, the
territory between life and death that runs parallel to the living world.
Po has come to tell her that her father is stuck on the other side, and
that she is the only one who can help him cross over. A couple of
wooden boxes. Some ashes. Some magic dust. A ghost, its pet, and a boy
who forgot to wear a hat in the cold. From these seemingly odd, random
characters Oliver weaves the enchanting story of how, with the aid of
Liesl, these elements come together over the course of one week to
restore love and luster to a world gone grey and heartless.
I saw was "Lauren Oliver", and I knew I wanted to read this book. A few
months ago I picked up "Delirium" and loved it, so I'm sure this book
will contain the same wonderful writing I enjoyed so much.
Are you waiting for this book, or have you already been able to read it? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
