Waiting on Wednesday: The Girl is Murder


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


The Girl is Murder
by Kathryn Miller Haines

Release Date: July 19, 2011

It’s the Fall of 1942 and Iris’s world is rapidly changing. Her Pop is back from the war with a missing leg, limiting his ability to do the physically grueling part of his detective work. Iris is dying to help, especially when she discovers that one of Pop’s cases involves a boy at her school. Now, instead of sitting at home watching Deanna Durbin movies, Iris is sneaking out of the house, double crossing her friends, and dancing at the Savoy till all hours of the night. There’s certainly never a dull moment in the private eye business.

I know it is a bit early to be posting a July title but I squealed when I read the synopsis of this book! I love old movies set in the 1940's and a YA that is actually set in that time is rare. Plus Deanna Durbin movies rock! You should check out Something in the Wind or It Started with Eve. She is such a good actress, especially since she started out so young! I will be egarly awaiting the release of this book and reading Haines' adult series, starting with The War Against Miss Winter.
