The S.O.S Book of the Week is where I let you in on what new releases I'm looking forward to! S.O.S comes from the term 'Strict on Sale'. It's bookseller speak for a title that you can't sell before a specific date-- think Harry Potter. While the books I have here may not be S.O.S titles specifically, they are all new!
The S.O.S. Book of the Week is:
Taken from Goodreads, "Chris Astor is a man in his early forties who is going through the toughest stretch of his life. Becky is Chris's fourteen-year-old daughter, a girl who overcame enormous challenges to become a vibrant, vital young woman - and now faces her greatest obstacle yet. Miea is the young queen of a fantasy land that Becky and Chris created when Becky was little, a fantasy land that has developed a life of its own and now finds itself in terrible, maybe fatal trouble.
Together, Chris, Becky, and Miea need to uncover a secret. The secret to why their worlds have joined at this moment. The secret to their purpose. The secret to the future. It is a secret that, when discovered, will redefine imagination for all of them. Blue is a novel of trial and hope, invention and rediscovery. It might very well take you someplace you never knew existed."
'Blue' by Lou Aronica has a release date of January 8th, 2011. Arconica will be visiting this humble blog February 18th (interview) and 19th (review), so visit back to learn more about this book!
I accepted this book tour title because the concept of 'Blue' seemed a bit like it could have a 'Neverending Story' feel to it. I've always liked the idea of the fantasy characters interacting with human/real world characters. Because of the multiple main characters, it might even appeal to my YA/Juvi reading habits.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to 'Blue'?
