Wanting & Waiting: for all the upcoming releases I just need to have!
This one’s coming out soon~ I just don’t know when I will get my hands on it because I doubt it will be available in our country. I found out about this book through finding the author on twitter. This is her debut novel so I’m not sure what we should expect. However, it looks very interesting and I definitely want to read it. I hope that it’s as good as it looks.

For years, Mara Tucker has used her power of manipulating flames to punish those who have done her wrong. But things are changing in the town of Jericho. Rampant disappearances have forced Mara to seek out others with special powers. In a story that confronts the violence and turmoil of adolescence, Mara and a group of other “unusuals” like her grapple with new alliances and the villains pressing in all around them.
“A tale of teenage rebellion in the tradition of classics ranging from The Outsiders to The Hunger Games, Veronica Bane’s fantasy novella explores the timeless themes of growing up, finding one’s inner strength, and discovering where one belongs. The titular antiheroine and her flawed-but-lovable band of “unusuals” are characters that will resonate with teen audiences and older readers alike.” –Ashley Heaton, Editor
