Waiting on Wednesday: Into the Dim

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor
Pub. Date: March 1, 2016


Goodreads says, "Being “the home-schooled girl” in a small town, Hope Walton’s crippling phobias and photographic memory don’t endear her to her dad's perfectly blond, very Southern family. When her mother is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world implodes. After being shipped off to an aunt she's never met, Hope learns there's more to her mother's "death" than she ever dreamed. At her aunt's manor, high in the Scottish Highlands, Hope begins to unravel the shocking truth about her family. Her mom isn't just a brilliant academic. She’s a member of a secret society of time travelers, and is currently trapped in the twelfth century in the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. To stage a rescue, the sheltered teen must join the Indiana Jones-wannabe team of time-jumpers, before her mother is lost for good. In a brutal, medieval world, Hope will discover more family secrets, and a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free…or the very key to Hope’s undoing. Addictive and rich with historical detail, INTO THE DIM (Coming Spring 2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is an unlikely heroine's story of adventure, sacrifice, and first love, in a high stakes race against time itself."
This is probably one of my most anticipated YA novels for 2016.  It has time travelers, the Scottish Highlands, the 12th Century? A big yes from me!

  3. This seems to be a popular Waiting on Wednesday choice today - I saw at least 2 others had it as well. The historical bit sounds interesting to me as does the time travel. if time travel is well done or the book is super well written I will definitely pick it up---one of my favorite books is The Time Traveler's Wife :-)
