This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Title: The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls
Author: Claire Legrand
Release Date: August 28th 2012

Victoria hates nonsense. There is no need for it when your life is perfect. The only smudge on her pristine life is her best friend Lawrence. He is a disaster—lazy and dreamy, shirt always untucked, obsessed with his silly piano. Victoria often wonders why she ever bothered being his friend. (Lawrence does, too.)

But then Lawrence goes missing. And he’s not the only one. Victoria soon discovers that Mrs. Cavendish’s children’s home is not what it appears to be. Kids go in but come out . . . different, or they don’t come out at all.

If anyone can sort this out, it’s Victoria, even if it means getting a little messy.

This book is totally up my ally, I love prim and proper heroines paired with mystery! Also, the illustrations for this book already look absolutely gorgeous, I know I’ll fall in love with its design once I see it in real life.

    Oh, this is the first time I see this book but I totally love it! The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls sounds like a great, fun read. I read the review of this book from the author and it is hilarious! Victoria seems like a wonderful heroine I’m going to adore, especially since I can’t stand mess either LOL! x)

  5. This may be a little kiddish of me, but I LOVE books with illustrations in them too! x) Books like Liesl & Po, Chopsticks, A Monster Calls, and all the other illustrated books we have in common… They always make a book come to life a bit more, and they’re just so pretty to look at! If they’re anything like the pretty cover, then I think I’m really going to love this book too!

    Amazing pick for your WOW this week, Elena! <3 :)
