Waiting on Wednesday #15 @catwinters

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Tiffany's Pick:






Release Date: March 8, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Retelling
Pages: 352
Published By: Amulet Books
A thrilling reimagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Steep and Thorny Way tells the story of a murder most foul and the mighty power of love and acceptance in a state gone terribly rotten.

1920s Oregon is not a welcoming place for Hanalee Denney, the daughter of a white woman and an African-American man. She has almost no rights by law, and the Ku Klux Klan breeds fear and hatred in even Hanalee’s oldest friendships. Plus, her father, Hank Denney, died a year ago, hit by a drunk-driving teenager. Now her father’s killer is out of jail and back in town, and he claims that Hanalee’s father wasn’t killed by the accident at all but, instead, was poisoned by the doctor who looked after him—who happens to be Hanalee’s new stepfather.

The only way for Hanalee to get the answers she needs is to ask Hank himself, a “haint” wandering the roads at night



Why I'm Waiting:
  I have heard awesome things about Cat Winters writing and ability to spin a captivating tale.  The fact that she is re-imagining Hamlet and twisting it up, sprouts a need to pick up this book.  I find the synopsis and the unique twists presented highly captivating.  If Winters is as good as I've heard this may be a good time to start a new author obsession.  

Happy Reading! Ciao:
