This week I can’t wait for:
The Revelry by Katherine Webber
Expected publication: 6 January 2022
Publisher: Walter Books
A story of best friends, bad luck and the consequences of breaking the rules in a town built on secrets and superstitions.
I am girl of Ember Grove, and these are my woods…
Growing up in Ember Grove, Bitsy Clark knows better than to mess with the long-held traditions of her hometown. Until her best friend, Amy, persuades her to sneak into the Revelry – the end of school party in the woods, to which only those leaving are invited.
When she wakes the next day, Bitsy can’t remember anything from the night before.
Weirder still, whenever she tries to speak about the Revelry, Bitsy chokes on the words. But this is just the beginning, and what starts out as a run of bad luck starts to feel like a curse. As Bitsy’s life goes from bad to worse, things only get better and better for her best friend. It’s as if there’s only so much luck to go round and Amy’s getting all of it…
Why I Can’t Wait for this book:
You had me at ‘best friends’. I am also drawn to this idea of one friend maybe, I dunno, like ‘feeding’ off another friend’s bad luck? It sounds really cool and I’d love to see what it’s all about.
