Waiting on Wednesday: Beswitched



“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I chose Beswitched by Kate Saunders. Expected publication: December 13th 2011 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers.

A magic spell has spun Flora into the past. She’s mysteriously swapped lives with a schoolgirl in 1935! No iPod? No cell phone? No hair products? How will she survive?
Now Flora’s a new girl at St. Winifred’s, where she has to speak French at breakfast, wear hideous baggy bloomers, and sleep in a freezing dormitory.
But lots of adventures in the past are amazing even if they are not forever. How will she find her way back to the 21st century?


This title has a lot of elements that I typically like–1930s setting with a time travel theme, for instance.

What about you? What’s your Waiting on Wednesday pick?

  2. I haven’t seen this cover before. I LIKE it though. I looks like some kind of fairy-tale retellings or something although the synopsis may not sound like it at all. The story sounds very good! Awesome choice! Thank you for sharing!
