Wishlist Wednesday: Nowhere Girl

Nowhere Girl by A.J. Paquette
Fantasy, 256 pages
Expected publication: September 13th 2011 
From Walker Books for Young Readers
Luchi Ann only knows a few things about herself: she was born in a prison in Thailand. Her American mother was an inmate there. And now that her mother has died, Luchi must leave the only place she's ever known and set out into the world. Neither at home as a Thai, because of her fair skin and blond hair, nor as a foreigner, because of her knowledge of Thai life and traditions, Luchi feels as though she belongs nowhere. But as she embarks on an amazing adventure-a journey spanning continents and customs, harrowing danger and exhilarating experiences-she will find the family, and the home, she's always dreamed of. Weaving intricate elements of traditional Thailand into a modern-day fairy tale unique unto itself, Nowhere Girl is a beautifully rendered story of courage, resilience, and finding the one place where you truly belong.

I actually meant to show you this one sooner, since it'll be coming out in a few weeks.  The cover is certainly what caught my eye on this one, for sure.  But it's the synopsis that has kept my interest.  I think this one sounds really different and intriguing, and it makes me curious which is always a good thing.  (And having the words "modern-day fairy tale" in a description never hurts when it comes to piquing my interest.)  Also, I think I might be on a middle grade kick; I've been craving and wishlisting a lot of middle grade reads lately.  Or maybe it's just that there are a lot of good ones coming out.  Middle grade authors upping their game?
Anyone else heard of this one?  Looking forward to it, or not your thing?
