Waiting on Wednesday (25)

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

My pick this week:
The Lost Girl
Sangu Mandanna
Release date: August 28th, 2012
by Balzer + Bray

Eva's life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination - an echo. Made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, she is expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her 'other', if she ever died. Eva studies what Amarra does, what she eats, what it's like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.

But fifteen years of studying never prepared her for this.

Now she must abandon everything she's ever known - the guardians who raised her, the boy she's forbidden to love - to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive.

Sangu calls this a mixture of Tim Burton and Frankenstein - who does not this this is particularly awesome!? All of Tim Burton's movies have become favorites of mine, so anything he has inspired, Me waaaaaant! Even without him in the mix, though, it sounds like a very intriguing plot. I will be waiting impatiently to read this one! =)

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
