Day 269 - Waiting on Wednesday [26]


As a Chinese adoptee in St. Louis, teenage Daiyu often feels out of place. When an elderly Asian jewelry seller at a street fair shows her a black jade ring—and tells her that “black jade” translates to “Daiyu”—she buys it as a talisman of her heritage. But it’s more than that; it’s magic. It takes Daiyu through a gateway into a version of St. Louis much like 19th century China. Almost immediately she is recruited as a spy, which means hours of training in manners and niceties and sleight of hand. It also means stealing time to be with handsome Kalen, who is in on the plan. There’s only one problem. Once her task is done, she must go back to St. Louis and leave him behind forever. . . .


Reason: I added this to my TBR list a while ago and now it's finally getting closer to the release date. It just sounds like it's going to be really sweet.

Cover Discussion: I think the cover is really pretty! I love the couple silhouette against the umbrella. So sweet =)

Gateway will be released October 15th!

What are you waiting on this week?
