Waiting on Wednesday: Furious

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: Henry Holt & Co. BYR
Publish Date: April 2013
Genre: Mythology
Edelweiss Summary: Three high school girls become the avenging Furies of Greek legend.

We were only three angry girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.

We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious.

Why am I waiting on Furious? I can’t resist books with Greek mythology and have not read a book where the furies were the main characters. I’m also surprised that the girls on the cover look like real high school girls instead of overly madeup, highly airbrushed super models. What books are you waiting on?

I've never heard of Furious. Mostly when I go to Waiting on Wednesday people say "Stormdancer" or something. :)

I'll have to add it to my to-read list!

I had never heard of this one! Interesting premise though. Greek mythology has been a popular theme in fiction in the last couple years and I am not yet tired of it!
