Waiting on Wednesday (27)

Entwined - Heather Dixon
*March 29th, 2011 Greenwillow Books

Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.

The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.

Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.

But there is a cost.

The Keeper likes to keep things.

Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

How cool a name is Azalea? It sounds like a twist on The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Fractured fairy tales are always interesting (think Gail Carson Levine or Margaret Peterson Haddix), so it's great to see another one.

'The Keeper' sounds kind of omnious, don't you you think?

What're you waiting on this Wednesday?
