My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: VIXEN-The Flappers, Book One by Lila Fine.

It's that time again...Waiting on Wednesday is the terrific meme started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This is the place to be to get your weekly fix of what's new in the book world. We check out each others blogs, this day in particular, to learn about what's coming out that's good to read.

Now, I love the paranormal, but sometimes a girl has to delve into the real thing. No monsters, no creatures, nothing otherworldly, just regular folks in the midst of drama. Vixen, the first book in the new Flappers series sounds like it will fit the bill. And it's different. It's set in the twenties. I've always been kind of fascinated with life during the roaring twenties. A YA book set during that time sounds kind of intriguing. Check out the description:

Jazz . . . Booze . . . Boys . . . It’s a dangerous combination.

Every girl wants what she can’t have. Seventeen-year-old Gloria Carmody wants the flapper lifestyle—and the bobbed hair, cigarettes, and music-filled nights that go with it. Now that she’s engaged to Sebastian Grey, scion of one of Chicago’s most powerful families, Gloria’s party days are over before they’ve even begun . . . or are they?

Clara Knowles, Gloria’s goody-two-shoes cousin, has arrived to make sure the high-society wedding comes off without a hitch—but Clara isn’t as lily-white as she appears. Seems she has some dirty little secrets of her own that she’ll do anything to keep hidden. . . .

Lorraine Dyer, Gloria’s social-climbing best friend, is tired of living in Gloria’s shadow. When Lorraine’s envy spills over into desperate spite, no one is safe. And someone’s going to be very sorry...

I definitely want to check it out. How about you?
