This week I'm waiting on...
When the Stars Go Blue by Caridad Ferrer
Release Date: November 23, 2010
Dance is Soledad Reyes's life. About to graduate from Miami's Biscayne High School for the Performing Arts, Soledad plans on spending her last summer at home working in a dance studio, saving up money, and eventually auditioning for dance companies. That is, until fate intervenes in the form of fellow student Jonathan Crandall with what sounds like an outrageous proposition. Forget teaching. Why not actually dance, in front of an audience, in the intense environment of competitive drum and bugle corps? The corps is going to be performing Carmen, and the role of the sultry gypsy is Soledad's dream role. She joins the troupe and she and Jonathan grow closer. But a competitor for her affections soon makes himself known: Taz, a member of an all-star Spanish soccer team. One explosive encounter later and Soledad finds not only her relationship with Jonathan threatened, but her future as a professional dancer.
-Look at that cover. It is fantastic! I love the rose in the hair and the petals falling down around her. Seriously I love it, reminds me of a flamenco dancer. The book is based off of Carmen, which I've never seen but I know the story well and I'm excited to see the story take place in a drums corps with a dancer as the main character. I don't know anything about bands so it should be quite intriguing. And of course the romance sounds like it's going to be hot ;) I wish it was coming out this summer, it seems like a perfect summer read. *sigh*
