Waiting on Wednesday (76)

Good morning/evening/afternoon, whenever you happen to be stopping by, and welcome to another edition of Waiting on Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It highlights the books that we just can't bear to wait for any longer! Eek! Can't wait!!

   
This week my WoW is....


Born of Illusion by Teri Brown 
Release Date: June 11th, 2013
Here is the summary from Goodreads: Anna Van Housen is thirteen the first time she breaks her mother out of jail. By sixteen she’s street smart and savvy, assisting her mother, the renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and séances, and easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums and mentalists in 1920’s New York City. Handcuffs and sleight of hand illusions have never been much of a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother, who will stop at nothing to gain her ambition of becoming the most famous medium who ever lived. But when a strange, serious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing her to a secret society that studies people with gifts like hers, he threatens to reveal the secrets Anna has fought so hard to keep, forcing her to face the truth about her past. Could the stories her mother has told her really be true? Could she really be the illegitimate daughter of the greatest magician of all?

This is one of those books that's been on my To-Read list for a long time, just waiting and counting down the days until it's released. You all know by now how I feel about the Roaring Twenties, so I'm very excited about this new piece of historical fiction! What are y'all waiting on this lovely Wednesday? Leave me links so I can come visit!!
