Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Earlier this year at BEA I was lucky enough to meet many people from this amazing small publisher, Spencer Hill Press, and they are all so fantastic! I have been eagerly awaiting my chance to work with them ever since speaking to them about their YA offerings and chatting with some of their authors.
I was more than ecstatic when I was offered a spot on their Amarok tour. Since I am obsessed with wolves (as many of my regular readers probably know) I have had my eye on this title since it was first announced. I can't wait to read it and share my thoughts with you all! Look for my tour stop September 21st.

Life has been hell for seventeen-year-old Emma since she moved from sunny California to a remote Alaskan town. Rejected by her father and living with the guilt of causing her mother's death, she makes a desperate dash for freedom from her abusive stepfather. But when her car skids off the icy road, her escape only leads to further captivity in a world beyond her imagining. Dragged across the tundra by a crazed mountain man and his enormous black wolf, she finds that her gentle touch and kind heart earn her the wolf's friendship, and she names him Amarok, not knowing he was once a young man. When a vicious madman--trapped in bear form by an ancient Shaman--attacks the travelers and injures Amarok, Emma must find the strength to confront her fears and free the wolf she's come to love. But there's a catch--she must face down the evil shaman, a powerful Siberian mammoth hunter from the ice age, and he has no intention of giving up his power to her.
