This week's WoW is . . .
Speechless by Hannah Harrington
The story of a girl named Chelsea Knot who takes a voluntary oath of silence after her gossip-mongering ways yield unexpected consequences…
Yes, I realize that this only has a sentence-long description. Yes, I want to read it anyway. First off, even that one sentence description would probably be enough to hook me, even if I wasn't already smitten with the author's writing; a girl who swears to silence after her gossiping goes too far? Yes, please.
More importantly, though, it's written by Hannah Harrington. I was completely in love with her first novel, so if Speechless is anywhere near as stunning as Saving June, it'll be a quick favorite.
Also, that cover. I know some aren't fond of it because of how very plain it is, but I'm . . . in love with it, to be honest. I just picture this novel sitting on shelves, brilliant white with its bold, raised text and dark tagline, amongst a horde of snappy dresses and flashy colors. And it makes me smile. Because you know what this novel will do? It will stand out. It will be the one that catches your eye. It will be the one in your bag when you leave that store.
So, yes. I am completely in love with the concept of this one, and I wish September didn't seem so terribly far away.
