Waiting on Wednesday #18


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine, to show books that we are patiently waiting for.  

The book we're waiting for this week is:
In The Shadows of Black Birds by Cat Winters
Expected publication: April 2013 by Amulet books 
 Book Description:

In 1918, the world seems on the verge of apocalypse. Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish influenza, and the government ships young men to the front lines of a brutal war, creating an atmosphere of fear and confusion. Sixteen-year-old Mary Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to sĂ©ances and spirit photographers for comfort, but she herself has never believed in ghosts. During her bleakest moment, however, she’s forced to rethink her entire way of looking at life and death, for her first love—a boy who died in battle—returns in spirit form. But what does he want from her?
Featuring haunting archival early-twentieth-century photographs, this is a tense, romantic story set in a past that is eerily like our own time.

Why I'm excited for this:
Love apocalyptic and paranormal stories. "a boy who died in battle—returns in spirit form. But what does he want from her?" --I like the eerie setting. Plus it's set in early twentieth century.
