“Devil-at-the-crossroads” folklore finds its way to YA via this moody, magical tale.

Blue Riley has wrestled with her own demons ever since the loss of her mother to cancer. But when she encounters a beautiful devil at her town crossroads, it’s her runaway sister’s soul she fights to save. The devil steals Blue’s voice—inherited from her musically gifted mother—in exchange for a single shot at finding Cass.

Armed with her mother’s guitar, a knapsack of cherished mementos, and a pair of magical boots, Blue journeys west in search of her sister. When the devil changes the terms of their deal, Blue must reevaluate her understanding of good and evil and open herself to finding family in unexpected places.

In Devil and the Bluebird, Jennifer Mason-Black delivers a heart-wrenching depiction of loss and hope.

Cover lust. I have it. Also, you tell me there's a devil in the story, and I am so in. Plus, sister stories are always worth a read, having two sisters of my own and never really understanding either of them completely. Also also, I can't say no to characters named Blue. So, to sum up, this book sounds all kinds of made for me. :D

What are you desperately waiting for this Wednesday? Let us know in the comments or share a link to your own WoW post!

  2. This is interesting! Definitely one to watch for.

  3. This definitely sounds interesting. A little Magical Realism going on I'd say. And I'm also a sucker for a book about sisters. And one of them is named Cass? I'm interested. *adds to Goodreads*
