Waiting On Wednesday [@CosDrift @abramskids]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:

DEVIL AND THE BLUEBIRD by Jennifer Mason-Black

“Devil-at-the-crossroads” folklore finds its way to YA via this moody, magical tale

Blue Riley has wrestled with her own demons ever since the loss of her mother to cancer. But when she encounters a beautiful devil at her town crossroads, it’s her runaway sister’s soul she fights to save. The devil steals Blue’s voice—inherited from her musically gifted mother—in exchange for a single shot at finding Cass.

Armed with her mother’s guitar, a knapsack of cherished mementos, and a pair of magical boots, Blue journeys west in search of her sister. When the devil changes the terms of their deal, Blue must reevaluate her understanding of good and evil and open herself to finding family in unexpected places.

In Devil and the Bluebird, Jennifer Mason-Black delivers a heart-wrenching depiction of loss and hope.

The 'devil-at-the-crossroads' always makes me think of Supernatural and of Robert Johnson:

Which is why I am happy that music is a part of Devil and the Bluebird. Though in quite a different way . . . 

One thing I really love about the idea is that it is a literal devil the deal's being made with. Nothing figurative or supposed here, ti's the real thing.

Even better is that it's one girls desire to find her sister that sets things into motion. I am interested in finding out what type of person Blue is that she's willing to risk so much to find her sister and what type of person Cass was to make the deal in the first place!

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
