Wishlist Wednesday

Wednesday, June 16, 2010 |
Cassel comes from a family of curse workers -- people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail -- he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.
Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.-Goodreads


Although I've never read any of Holly Black's other works, I've only heard good things, especially about White Cat! I actually just got this one out from the library, but I've still got quite a ways to go on my TBR pile. It's summer though, so hopefully I'll be able to get around to it soon!

White Cat was fantastic! I'd never, and still haven't, read anything else by Holly Black but I loved it and highly recommend.

Also, I gave you an award! You can check it out over here!
