Waiting on Wednesday #9 - Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.


Bright Young Things - Anna Godbersen.
HarperCollins
Hardcover, 416 pages.
Release date: October 26th 2010.
Target age group: Young Adult.

Bright Young Things is the first in an epic four-book series about three teenage girls finding their way in the glittering metropolis of New York City and the glamorous mansions of Long Island. It’s 1929 and Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town to chase big dreams and even bigger secrets. In New York, they meet Astrid Donal, a flapper who has everything she could ever want, except for the one thing Letty and Cordelia have to offer—true friendship. Set in the dizzying summer before the market crash, against the vast lawns of the East End and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls will find romance, intrigue, and adventure.

Just as The Luxe books brought the Gilded Age to readers of Gossip Girl, Bright Young Things will bring the Jazz Age to bestselling author Anna Godbersen’s devoted fans and to new readers alike.

I still haven't gotten around to reading The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen, even though it's a series I really think I'd like.  I love the sound of this new book from the author, and can't wait to read it!

What is your Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week?
