"Waiting On" Wednesday: Thirty Girls

"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:

Thirty Girls

By Susan Minot
Publication Date: February 11

From Amazon:

Esther is a Ugandan teenager abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army and forced to witness and commit unspeakable atrocities, who is struggling to survive, to escape, and to find a way to live with what she has seen and done. Jane is an American journalist who has traveled to Africa, hoping to give a voice to children like Esther and to find her center after a series of failed relationships. In unflinching prose, Minot interweaves their stories, giving us razor-sharp portraits of two extraordinary young women confronting displacement, heartbreak, and the struggle to wrest meaning from events that test them both in unimaginable ways.  

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Residents of the Italian city Licata have been sharing footage of multiple waterspouts forming off the coast on Tuesday.

The southern side of Sicily has been experiencing severe weather, including torrential rain and violent winds.

Officials say multiple 'whirlwinds' touched down across the region. One man is known to have died.

A waterspout is defined as a rotating column of cloud-filled wind that forms over water. They can travel onto land, where they are then known as a tornado.
