by Ann-Katrina

Wait Until Twilight Cover

First line: The sun sits flat against the blue sky like someone pressed it on there with a giant thumb.

Initial thoughts: It seems that the Waiting on Wednesday fairies paid me a visit. *sigh of relief* I finally get to read about those deformed triplets whose mother believes they were immaculately conceived. Happy days.

Book description:

What I need to do, needs to be done before it gets too dark . . .

Sixteen-year-old Samuel confronts his own inner monster when he discovers a set of deformed triplets whose mother believes they were immaculately conceived. Soon, the babies have taken hold of his waking and sleeping thoughts, and, unable to escape them, he decides to save them, but their shut-in mother and violent older brother want nothing to do with him.

Samuel must fight the trouble within him and the trouble he sees around him to determine who he will become in a year that forces him to grow from motherless boy to self-defined man. Set in a small Georgia town, this psychologically complex story of survival and self determination explores the dark, often contradictory worlds of young contemporary life, laying bare the ugly truths and secrets that haunt all of us.

Book Details: 240 pages; Harper Paperbacks; Pub. August 4, 2009

    I’m supposed to be getting this one soon, too. I read an excerpt and it’s wonderfully gothic!

    I totally agree, Belle. I was hooked when I read the excerpt and I needed to read more. I have a couple books in queue before this one, but I can’t wait to get to it.
