Waiting on Wednesday (17)

This week I'm waiting on...

Dreamsleeves by Coleen Murtagh Paratore. Here's what Goodreads has to say: Aislinn is a girl with a lot of dreams, but due to family issues (caused mostly by her hard-drinking father), there's a lot standing in her way. While she should be enjoying the summer with friends, Aislinn is kept under lock and key and put in charge of her younger siblings. The average girl might give up, but not Aislinn. A person, she says, should write their dreams on their sleeve, putting them out there for the world to see, because there's a good chance that someone might come along and help you make your dream come true. What begins as a plea for help for her father to stop drinking, turns into a spark that has the whole community making their own dreamsleeves. At times heartbreaking, DREAMSLEEVES is also surprising, powerful, and luminously hopeful. Everyone will see a little of themselves in Aislinn, a girl with talent, ambition, and big dreams.

Honestly, I wanted to read this as soon as I heard the title. The cover isn't my favorite, but it does have some elements (the bubble!) that I really like. DREAMSLEEVES releases in April 2012.

I agree, this title is fantastic. I really enjoyed her Wedding Planner's Daughter series so I'll definitely keep an eye out for this one.
