"Waiting On" Wednesday 87

A Girl, A Ghost, and the Hollywood Hills by Lizabeth Zindel

When Holly's mother dies unexpectedly, she thinks things can't get much worse. But then her dad starts dating again. And his new girlfriend is Holly's aunt and her mom's sister! Aunt Claudia is known in Hollywood as the Queen of B Movies. Horror films, zombie flicks, she's made them all. Holly never liked her aunt, but now she positively can't stand her. Especially once the ghost of her mother appears and tells Holly that Claudia was to blame for her death.

Inspired by Hamlet, this funny novel about the danger of family secrets is a modern comic take on a classic Shakespearean tragedy.

Released October 14th 2010

I'm so glad this says "comic take" in the summary cause Hamlet = not very light! I think this could be a lot of fun. Could totally see Holly trying to take down her aunt, I love that her aunt is the Queen of B Movies! I'm sure we'll get some great movie descriptions in the book!

What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!


  1. Lol, this seems like such a fun read! I'm also glad that this is more comic than serious, like Hamlet (and I really couldn't stand the prince himself! >_<).

    Anyway, awesome pick for WoW~

  2. This sounds too fun! I love books based on Shakespeare (and films for that matter).

  3. Any mention of zombies makes me want the book, even if there are no zombies in the story. xD
