This is a weekly meme held by Breaking the Spine where you showcase something that you are excited for that is soon to be released. This week’s book is Outrun The Moon by Stacey Lee which will be published on May 24th, 2016.
I feel in love with this when Buzzfeed posted a list of 16 YA Novels Coming Out This Spring and the cover just made me go ‘I NEED THIS’ and then I realized that it was about the San Fransciso Earth Quake and that made me need it more.
San Francisco, 1906: Fifteen-year-old Mercy Wong is determined to break from the poverty in Chinatown, and an education at St. Clare’s School for Girls is her best hope. Although St. Clare’s is off-limits to all but the wealthiest white girls, Mercy gains admittance through a mix of cunning and a little bribery, only to discover that getting in was the easiest part. Not to be undone by a bunch of spoiled heiresses, Mercy stands strong—until disaster strikes.
