Book Watch: Hanging by a Thread
Hanging by a Thread by Sophie Littlefield will be released in the U.S. on September 11, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats.
Published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 288 pages.
While the week of September 11th is fairly quiet for new releases in YA, there is a book that I’ve had my eye on for quite some time that I just had to put in the spotlight, and that’s HANGING BY A THREAD by Sophie Littlefield.
I first noticed this book because of its cover. It’s so pretty and so gruesome all at once. And the title made me curious to find out just what it was about.
Murder. Mystery. Psychic abilities. Oh yes, I was definitely intrigued. And that the title plays upon the fact that the main character Clare works as a seamstress makes me love it even more.
I can’t wait to add this book to my collection and find out more about her powers – psychometry, I believe – and to learn more about just how they came to be in the first place. Yes, I read the excerpt and it sounds awesome… and dark.
While I haven’t yet read anything by the author, though I own the two YA titles in her Banished series, judging from the excerpt I think I’m going to love her writing style. And I am definitely excited to pick this one up on release date.
With the promise of secrets, a dark past, danger and a wickedly awesome ability, HANGING BY A THREAD is most definitely a book worth watching.
