Waiting on Wednesday

So the book I've just read about and want, really want to read right now is

Prophecy of Days by Christy Raedeke

Here's what the back cover says about it:

When her safe-cracker mom and code-breaker dad inherit a Scottish castle on the Isle of Huracan, sixteen-year-old Caity Mac Fireland is the only one in the family who's not happy about it. Ripped from her comfortable life in San Francisco, taken away from her best friend Justine whom she's known since preschool, and relocated to the dreary island fortress, Caity's secret fantasy of being discovered by a Hollywood agent, talent scout, or even just a pageant coach seems more unlikely than ever.

But when Caity stumbles across a hidden room in the castle, its walls covered in strange symbols, her life takes a bizarre turn. She finds herself center stage in an international conspiracy involving warring secret societies (complete with their own scouts, double agents, and assassins), the suppressed revelations of the Mayan Calendar and the year 2012, plus the fate of humanity. With the help of her friend Justine back home, and Alex, the mysterious and gorgeous boy next door, Caity must rely on her own courage and creativity as she races to decipher the code and reveal its message to the world before time runs out.

Sounds a book worth waiting for.

The book sounds fabulous! I'm so happy to discover that Kepler's has a Blog.

I live in Menlo Park and Kepler's is my favorite indie bookseller. I worked upstairs for 19 years :)

Christy - nice of you to drop by - I'm looking forward to reading your book and even more excited because I know we're working on finalizing a date for an event at kepler's.

I am thrilled at the possibility of an event! My mother grew up in Menlo Park and my agent lives there so lots of friends and family are already die-hard Keplerians!
