There were a number of shiny books that caught my eye. (Did you know, for instance, that there's going to be a sequel to Dead End in Norvelt--From Norvelt to Nowhere? And there Conjured, by Sarah Beth Durst, which looks great, and I'm looking forward to Dark Lord, a Fiend in Need, by Jamie Thompson, and lots more.)
The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two, by Catherynne M. Valente, coming October 8, 2013.
I wasn't desperately taken with The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, but I really, really liked its sequel, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There (or, as us Middle Grade sci fi/fantasy panelists for last year's Cybils called, it, The Girl with the Really Long Title). Here's my review of that one. So I'm looking forward to this new one lots! (And I think the cover is great).
Here's the blurb:
"September misses Fairyland and her friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. She longs to leave the routines of home and embark on a new adventure. Little does she know that this time, she will be spirited away to the moon, reunited with her friends, and find herself faced with saving Fairyland from a moon-Yeti with great and mysterious powers."
