Waiting on Wednesday [162] DEVIL AND THE BLUEBIRD by Jennifer Mason-Black

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that we’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. This week’s pick isn’t the normal sort of book I read, but I do love anything that deals with music, and I love the book’s whimsical cover:

Devil and the Bluebird“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.


Magical boots??? Yes! I’ve read some really good “devil at the crossroads” stories, and I’m hoping this is good too. Devil and the Bluebird by Jennifer Mason-Black will be released in May 2016 from Amulet Books.

Let me know what you’re waiting on:-)
