Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Eyes



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:


Dark Eyes by William Richter
Publisher: Razorbill
Genre: Young Adult
Publication Date: 03.15.2012
Goodreads  /  LibraryThing - doesn't have it yet. Sorry!
Get ready for the vigilante girl detective of the next generation.

Wally was adopted from a Russian orphanage as a child and grew up in a wealthy New York City family. At fifteen, her obsessive need to rebel led her to life on the streets.

Now the sixteen-year-old is beautiful and hardened, and she's just stumbled across the possibility of discovering who she really is. She'll stop at nothing to find her birth mother before Klesko—her darkeyed father—finds her. Because Klesko will stop at nothing to reclaim the fortune Wally's mother stole from him long ago. Even if that means murdering his own blood. But Wally's had her own killer training, and she's hungry for justice.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens, this debut thriller introduces our next big series heroine!

Wally sounds like a kick-butt heroine who knows how to handle herself, so I'm eager to see what she does in this book. Plus: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens? Yes please!


What are you waiting on?
