“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on Into The Dim by Janet B. Taylor
* I first heard about this book on Twitter a few weeks ago, and now it seems to be all over the place. This is being described as a YA version of Outlander, and as an Outlander fan, I am extremely excited about this book. I haven’t read very many books about time travel, so I’m excited for that part of the story. It doesn’t come out until March, which seems like so far away.
Title: Into The Dim
Author: Janet B. Taylor
Published by: HMH Books for Young Readers; March 1, 2016
“Seventy-two hours, then we have to be back at the clearing. Sunrise on the third day.”
Being “the homeschooled girl,” in a small town, Hope Walton’s crippling phobias and photographic memory don’t help her fit in with her adoptive dad’s perfectly blonde Southern family. But when her mother is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world crumbles. After an aunt she’s never met invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic. She’s a member of a secret society of time travelers, and is actually trapped in the twelfth century in the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Now Hope must conquer her numerous fears and travel back in time to help rescue her mother before she’s lost for good. Along the way, she’ll discover more family secrets, and a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free… or the key to Hope’s undoing.
Addictive, romantic, and rich with historical detail, Into the Dim is an Outlander for teens.
