"Waiting On" Wednesday: When God Was a Rabbit
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
When God Was a Rabbit
Publication Date: May 10
In a remarkably honest and confident voice, Sarah Winman has written the story of a memorable young heroine, Elly, and her loss of innocence--a magical portrait of growing up and the pull and power of family ties. From Essex and Cornwall to the streets of New York, from 1968 to the events of 9/11, When God Was a Rabbit follows the evolving bond of love and secrets between Elly and her brother Joe, and her increasing concern for an unusual best friend, Jenny Penny, who has secrets of her own. With its wit and humor, engaging characters whose eccentricities are adroitly and sometimes darkly drawn, and its themes of memory and identity, When God Was a Rabbit is a love letter to true friendship and fraternal love.

I haven't read a good coming of age tale in a while. This one sounds like an attention grabber.
Hmm...what's up with Penny. Sounds intriguing.
Aww wow -- I love that this focuses on friendship and family, rather than romance for once. Great pick!
Um definitely something I haven't read for awhile. I keep saying I wanna try something out of my norm and haven't done it yet and this sounds perfect. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
Sounds good! Interesting title ;-)
I haven't done a Waiting On for a few weeks so I've listed 4 books today :-)
Not quite sure if this book is for me but I'll keep it in mind :) Thanks for sharing it with us. Have a wonderful day.
This book covers a lot of ground and sound very complex. Wondering about the brother sister relationship. Interesting pick.
I agree with Carissa, haven't read a good coming of age in years! Sounds like a good pick!
I love coming of age books....I'm adding this one to my list.
This sounds intriguing. Love the cover as well.

Thanks, as always, for hosting this!! And your book sounds really interesting. :D
Wow, this one is definitely going on my list! Thanks for sharing....
This sounds like a good one especially the initial setting. The meaning of the tile eludes me,however.
Sounds really interesting!
Love your pick today! The cover really caught my attention.
I'd pick that one up for the title alone.
Friendship and family :)
I want to check this out just to figure out that title! Good thing the story sounds good, too!
Very interesting choice, the cover reminds me of alice!
This book sounds really interesting (and the cover is to die for!)
My first time participating! So many books I'm waiting on.
Your pick this week sounds really good! It's good to take a break from all the love stories and supernatural type books I've been reading lately. So this is, yet another, book I'll have to add to my list! Thanks!

Sounds interesting! Thanks for hosting this.
Oh I like coming of ages that span several years. What an unusual title.
I enjoy reading novels also but every now and then a book comes out by a new author that deals with current events where he shares his opinions, rants and controversial recommendations from politics to sports/entertainment and everything in-between. A must read to get us to thinking. Jay Bennett
Hey; forgot to tell you the name of the author and book that I just commented on. The author's name is Leland M. Glen and his book is "Enough Already". It is available at Amazon.com and can by ordered through Barnes & Noble. Thanks
