Waiting on Wednesday (#23): In the Shadows by Kiersten White and Jim Di Bartolo

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and gives bloggers the chance to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about.

In the Shadows by Kiersten White and Jim Di Bartolo
Published: 29th April 2014 (Scholastic)
Plot summary: From the remarkable imagination of acclaimed artist Jim Di Bartolo and the exquisite pen of bestselling author Kiersten White comes a spellbinding story of love, mystery, and dark conspiracy, told in an alternating narrative of words and pictures.

Cora and Minnie are sisters living in a small, stifling town where strange and mysterious things occur. Their mother runs the local boarding house. Their father is gone. The woman up the hill may or may not be a witch.

Thomas and Charles are brothers who’ve been exiled to the boarding house so Thomas can tame his ways and Charles can fight an illness that is killing him with increasing speed. Their family history is one of sorrow and guilt. They think they can escape from it . . . but they can’t.

I love the idea of an illustrated book! It definitely sounds like a book you'd want to buy and own a physical copy of. I've just read two of Kiersten White's books after having wanted to check her out for a while, so this one is definitely on my radar.

What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments!
