Waiting on Yellow by Megan Jacobson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

I'm looking forward to reading...

Yellow by Megan Jacobson

Publisher: Penguin Teen Australia
Publication Date: 1 February 2016
Pre-Order: The Book Depository

Yellow is a YA murder mystery with a slight supernatural edge, but at heart it's about the redemptive power of kindness. Publishing in February 2016, it’s a beautifully written coming-of-age story about family, first love, finding your place and uncovering the secrets of the past.

If fourteen-year-old Kirra is having a mid-life crisis now, then it doesn't bode well for her life expectancy. Her so-called friends bully her, whatever semblance of a mother she had has been drowned at the bottom of a gin bottle ever since her dad left them for another woman, and now a teenage ghost is speaking to her through a broken phone booth. Kirra and the ghost make a pact. She'll prove who murdered him almost twenty years ago if he does three things for her. He makes her popular, he gets her parents back together, and he doesn't haunt her. Things aren't so simple however, and Kirra realises that people can be haunted in more ways than one.

Doesn't that just sound awesome? I attended PTALive here in Brisbane earlier tonight, where I was lucky enough to learn about some great books Penguin Teen Australia will be publishing next year, and this was one that I immediately noted as a must have! I was also very lucky to receive an ARC of it, so yay! I can't wait to read it!

What have you added to your TBR list?
