Waiting On Wednesday (Cloaked)

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday each participant will choose a book that they are "waiting on" or haven't released yet.  This week I'm missing fairy tales:

Title: Cloaked
Author: Alex Flinn
Pages: 256
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: February 8, 2011

Johnny works after school in a shoe repair shop in a swanky hotel in Miami. He loves shoes and is talented; he even aspires to be the next Manolo Blahnik. But the real reason that he is working so hard is because his dad left when he was a baby and he needs to help his mom pay the bills. At least he has his friend, Meg, who works at the hotel coffee shop, to keep him company.
When beautiful Princess Victoriana comes to stay at the hotel, Johnny is thrilled when Victoriana invites him to her suite. There she tells him that her brother has been turned into a frog, and that she needs his help finding him in the Florida Keys. Johnny thinks she is crazy and does not believe her, until she gives him a magical cloak that immediately transports him to another location. Armed with the cloak and a magical earpiece that can help him talk to other transformed humans Johnny sets out to save the Prince ...
I cannot wait for this book.  Not only do I have to wait for this book to come out, but Alex Flinn is known for her book Beastly.  That book was incredible and I am waiting for the movie to come out on DVD, because I guess I missed the release in theaters unless it comes out 2011.  Two reasons why I'm going to see the movie: (1) The movie has Alex Pettyfer in it and I think he is gorgeous.  (2) Beastly was a modern-day Beauty and the Beast- who doesn't love the classic tales?

So what are you "waiting" for?

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to this book, even though this is the first that I've heard of it. Also, you mentioned the movie, and I looked it up, apparently the theater release date which was supposed to be this fall, has been pushed off until next March.
