Waiting on Wednesday (4): Tris & Izzie


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


My WoW:
Tris & Izzie
by Mette Ivie Harrison
October 11th 2011

Summary:

(UNOFFICAL description, subject to alteration)

A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzie", is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until-- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.

Light, contemporary romantic fantasy for teens

Why am I waiting for Tris & Izzie?  I admit I'm not that into the summary, but oh, look at that cover! I don't know of any book called Tristan and Isolde, but Tris & Izzie totally had me when I first saw its cover.
