Memes & Features, Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday #74: The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!

This Week’s Pick:

 

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes
Title:The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly
Author: Stephanie Oakes
Expected Publication: June 9th 2015 by Dial/Penguin
Add it: Goodreads
Grab It: Amazon

Overview:
When seventeen-year-old Minnow stumbles out of the woods one winter morning, she is haunted and handless and covered in someone else’s blood. She has just escaped the strict religious commune run by a cruel man named the Prophet. In exchange for freedom, she leaves behind her family, her home, and Jude–an outsider boy who changed everything.

But the real world isn’t the sanctuary Minnow imagined. Soon, she gets arrested and placed in juvenile detention. Now, Minnow is being questioned by an FBI psychiatrist about the night she escaped, the same night the Prophet was burned to death in his own home—a murder Minnow may be responsible for.

A modern retelling of the Grimm fairy tale, “The Handless Maiden,” in which the Devil orders a girl’s hands cut off, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is the story of a girl growing out of the wreckage of corrupted faith.
