So… The BlueStocking Girl is almost here!!! I gotta tell you, as far as most anticipated reads of 2011 goes, this one is definitely in my top five. The BlueStocking Girl is the sequel to Gwenn Wright’s fabulous first book, Filter, which is one of my favorite reads of the year… and, well, ever.
What’s it about? Well… read on!
Filter follows two storylines, that of Rocky Evans, a 17 yr. old girl from present day, and Katherine, a 16 yr. old girl from 1877. Rocky is an orphan from Nashville who lives under the guardianship of a friend of her mother. She’s from the “wrong side of the tracks” and grew up trying to make ends meet, dodging rent collectors, and avoiding her alcoholic guardian’s increasing and disturbing interest in her. When a young lawyer shows up saying that his firm’s been looking for her, Rocky is presented with an opportunity to escape her less than ideal situation and discover the family she’s never known.
Katherine Demure, lives with her wealthy family in 1877 St. Louis, MO. Although plagued by weakness and illness she is a strong, opinionated girl who longs for exciting, novel-like adventures. One evening at a dinner party that her parents’ host, she accidentally meets the equally infuriating and captivating Viktor von Strassenberg and begins a journey that will rival even the darkest of gothic romances.
So… in honor of the upcoming release of The BlueStocking Girl, I’m giving ONE (1) of my followers the chance to win either a Kindle or Nook book of Filter… you know, so you can get caught up.
