Waiting on Wednesday: Dust Girl

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature at Breaking the Spine.

The book I'm "waiting on" is Dust Girl by Sarah Zettel. It will be published June 26, 2012.

Summary from GoodReads: This new trilogy will capture the hearts of readers who adore Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series. Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she's never met. Lately all of her energy is spent battling the constant storms plaguing the Dust Bowl and their effects on her health. Callie is left alone, when her mother goes missing in a dust storm. Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in "the golden hills of the west" (California). Along the way she meets Jack a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company—there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there's also an otherworldly threat to Callie. Warring fae factions, attached to the creative communities of American society, are very aware of the role this half-mortal, half-fae teenage girl plays in their fate.

Why I'm waiting: I love the idea of an American fairytale. I also like the setting, the Dust Bowl. It reminds me of the films of Tom Davenport, who has made several fairy tale films based in the American South. I hope it's as good as those films!
