"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Opposite of Everyone

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

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



The Opposite of Everyone
By Joshilyn Jackson

Publication Date: February 16

From Amazon:

Born in Alabama, Paula Vauss spent the first decade of her life on the road with her free-spirited young mother, Kai, an itinerant storyteller who blended Hindu mythology with southern oral tradition to re-invent their history as they roved. But everything, including Paula’s birth name Kali Jai, changed when she told a story of her own—one that landed Kai in prison and Paula in foster care. Separated, each holding secrets of her own, the intense bond they once shared was fractured.


These days, Paula has reincarnated herself as a tough-as-nails divorce attorney with a successful practice in Atlanta. While she hasn’t seen Kai in fifteen years, she’s still making payments on that Karmic debt—until the day her last check is returned in the mail, along with a mysterious note:
 “I am going on a journey, Kali. I am going back to my beginning; death is not the end. You will be the end. We will meet again, and there will be new stories. You know how Karma works.

Then Kai’s most treasured secret literally lands on Paula’s doorstep, throwing her life into chaos and transforming her from only child to older sister. Desperate to find her mother before it’s too late, Paula sets off on a journey of discovery that will take her back to the past and into the deepest recesses of her heart. With the help of her ex-lover Birdwine, an intrepid and emotionally volatile private eye who still carries a torch for her, this brilliant woman, an expert at wrecking families, now has to figure out how to put one back together—her own.

This is on my list as well - even though I didn't get her last book read yet!

Sounds like quite heavy read. Not quite my cup of tea, but it sounds intriguing ^^)

The cover doesn't really appeal to me, but the story sounds interesting. I wonder how many good books I miss out on because I don't even pick them up to read the synopsis if the cover doesn't pull me in!

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

I am eager for this one, too, although the cover isn't as great as those on some of her other books. But it's Joshilyn Jackson, so I'm definitely waiting on this one.

Laura said...

Have to agree with the others, the cover isn't that great. The book itself sounds interesting though. Hope you enjoy it when it comes out!

I like the book you picked this week. Excellent.

Mistakenly linked my name twice... I'm pretty new so I'm still figuring out this whole blogging thing, but I'm loving it so far! Love this meme, I get so excited reading everyone's highly anticipated titles!
