Waiting on Wednesday: Thresholds

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is...

by Nina Kiriki Hoffman
Releases on August 5, 2010.

Summary from Amazon:

Maya’s family has just moved from Idaho to Spores Ferry, Oregon. She’s nervous about starting middle school and making new friends, but soon that’s the last thing on her mind. First, a fairy flies into her room. Then it turns out that the kids in the apartment building next door do magic, and their basement is full of portals to other worlds. She’s bursting with new experiences and delight . . . and secrets, because she can’t breathe a word to her family, not even when she winds up taking care of an alien!

Imagine the family in Ingrid Law’s Savvy seen through the eyes of a young Ray Bradbury. Cross the Threshold!


  1. Wow. What a cover!

    BTW I love that hair on the cover of your current read.

  2. LOL...I didn't even notice the similarity. You've got a great eye (for hair).

    Yeah, I'm a sucker for an awesome cover!
