Waiting on Wednesday (#271): The Deepest Roots by Miranda Asebedo

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm featuring:

The Deepest Roots

The Deepest Roots by Miranda Asebedo
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: September 18, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

Contemporary with the slightest twist of magic, this stunning debut YA novel is a fresh and heartwarming story about the power of friendship.

Cottonwood Hollow, Kansas, is a strange place. For the past century, every girl has been born with a special talent, like the ability to Fix any object, Heal any wound, or Find what is missing.

Best friends Rome, Lux, and Mercy all have similar talents, but to them, their abilities often feel like a curse. Rome may be able to Fix anything she touches, but that won’t help her mom pay rent or make it any easier to confide in Lux and Mercy about what’s going on at home. And Rome isn’t the only one. Lux has been hiding bigger, more dangerous secrets.

As Rome struggles to keep her friendships close, she discovers the truth about life in Cottonwood Hollow—that friends are stronger than curses, that trust is worth the risk, and sometimes, what you’ve been looking for has been under your feet the whole time.

Doesn't this sound great? I am fascinated by the synopsis. There seems to be a foundation of magical realism here!

  9. This kind of reminds me of the Accident Season!

  10. Ooh I do like the sound of a little magic under the surface here- and the various abilities are a cool idea too!

  11. I just read 'Contemporary with the slightest twist of magic' and I'm like, okay give this book to me already. lol :D

  12. It sure does! Sounds more like magic realism, right? Thanks for this!

  13. This one is on my TBR, and it sounds like there is actual magic in there. You know I had to check it out when I saw that pretty cover.

  14. There does seem to be a thread of magical realism there, which probably makes this one less of a fit for me because I've never done too well with the genre! :D But it does sound lovely, I hope you enjoy it! I guess I'll decide whether or not to pick it up once the reviews start popping up!
