Waiting on Wednesday: Crewel

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers
Publish Date: Oct. 16, 2012
Genre: Fantasy
Goodreads Summary: Incapable. Awkward. Artless. That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.

Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.

Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.
Why am I waiting on Crewel? The summary sounds very original and the time weaving element sounds fantastic. I’m really excited to read this! What books are you waiting on?

I've seen this around other blogs but never stopped to read the synopsis until I saw it here. I'm glad I did. It sounds like it could be really good! I hope it doesn't suffer from GIPE (Good Idea - Poor Execution)!
