Wishlist Wednesday (11)



This week, I can't wait to read Luminous by Dawn Metcalf!  It was the cover that caught my eye - it's gorgeous! And then I read the description (courtesy of Goodreads):

When sixteen-year-old Consuela discovers she can remove her skin, revealing a lustrous mother-of-pearl skeleton, she slips into a parallel world known as the Flow, a place inhabited by archetypal teens with extraordinary abilities. Crafting skins out of anything – air, water, feathers, fire – she is compelled to save ordinary people from dying before their time. Yet now someone is murdering them, one by one, and Consuela finds herself the focus of an intricate plot to end the Flow forever when all she really wants is to get back home, alive.  (More information: Goodreads)

I don't think I've ever read a story about a person with the superpower to remove their skin.  To be honest, it creeps me out a little.  But it also makes me want to read Luminous even more!

What do you think?  Will you be reading Luminous when it comes out?
