Waiting on Wednesday:Hunting Lila

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine


Book: Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
Release Date: August 4th, 2011
Genre:  Young Adult
Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK
Description: 
The novels follow the story of Lila, a 17-year-old with the power of telekinesis, and Alex, her brother’s best friend and long-time love interest. When a mugging on the streets of South London goes horribly wrong and exposes her unique ability, Lila runs away to Southern California, where Alex and her brother are working for a secret organization called The Unit and searching for the men who killed Lila’s mother five years before. Lila unwittingly becomes embroiled in the hunt and a suspenseful murder mystery ensues.


Alright, so a mystery/adventure story about a girl who has the power of telekinesis? You can definitely count me in.  I love superpowers, adventure stories and mysteries. Basically, Hunting Lila sounds like a winner to me :)

UPDATE: Some of you have been asking when this is going to be released in the U.S. and unfortunately, there isn't a date set yet. However, you can preorder the U.K. paperback edition from The Book Depository for $8.60 (with free worldwide shipping!).

Telekinesis? Sounds interesting! Don't think there's a lot of YA books around here that talk about that.

Btw, LOVE THE BLOG... I quickly became a NEW follower.

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

Great pick! It sounds like a nice blend of paranormal, mystery, and romance, and I definitely agree that the telekinesis aspect is interesting.

So glad you like the sound of it! I'm not sure yet when it will be released in the States - but I hope soon! There are some giveaways planned on UK blogs at the end of July / start of August...

Thank you so much for recommending this book. I'm a sucker for main characters with paranormal abilities, and love interests in the form of the older brother's best friend! (:

This looks great! I love Book Depository!

Christina (Christinareadsya) said...

Woah!!! This is straight up my alley. I wonder what her ability is. I wonder if her power getting exposed will connect back to her mother's death. Ahhh, I love thrillers like this. Adding to my Goodreads list now & thanks for the info via Book Depository. Otherwise wouldn't be able to grab this one!
