"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Midnight Dress by Karen Foxlee

Hey all, "Waiting On" Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine (*gasps* What a brutal name!), which spotlights upcoming releases that we're excited about. 

The release I've chosen for this week is The Midnight Dress by Karen Foxlee. It's coming out this Tuesday on October 8.


From Amazon: 

Quiet misfit Rose doesn't expect to fall in love with the sleepy beach town of Leonora.
Nor does she expect to become fast friends with beautiful, vivacious Pearl Kelly, organizer of the high school float at the annual Harvest Festival parade. It's better not to get too attached when Rose and her father live on the road, driving their caravan from one place to the next whenever her dad gets itchy feet. But Rose can't resist the mysterious charms of the town or the popular girl, try as she might.

Pearl convinces Rose to visit Edie Baker, once a renowned dressmaker, now a rumored witch. Together Rose and Edie hand-stitch an unforgettable dress of midnight blue for Rose to wear at the Harvest Festival—a dress that will have long-lasting consequences on life in Leonora, a dress that will seal the fate of one of the girls. Karen Foxlee's breathtaking novel weaves friendship, magic, and a murder mystery into something moving, real, and distinctly original.

I'm excited about The Midnight Dress because I've heard a lot of great things about it, and it sounds like it has a refreshing plot. 

What releases are you waiting for this week?
