This week I'm waiting on....
Takeshita Demons by Cristy Burne
Release Date: October 1, 2010
Miku Takeshita and her family have moved from Japan to live in the U.K., but unfortunately the family's enemy demons have followed them . . . Miku knows she's in trouble when her new supply teacher turns out to be a nukekubi — a bloodthirsty demon who transforms into a flying head and snacks on children. That night, in a raging snowstorm, Miku's little brother Kazu is kidnapped by the demons. It's up to Miku and her friend Cait to get him back. The girls break into their snow-locked school, confronting the dragon-like Woman of the Wet, and outwitting the faceless Nopera-bo. At last, they come face to face with the nukekubi itself — but will they be in time to save Kazu?
-This book was first brought to my attention by the all-knowing Kaz. It was originally published in the UK and I think the covers are the same. I desperately want to get my hands on this book. A middle grade series with a main character who must battle demons? That's a lot of responsibility for someone in middle school! Sounds like an epic adventure with a hint of creepiness, but not too much :)
What book(s) are you waiting on this week? Any PoC releases?
