It's probably a bit early to be posting this one, but I just couldn't wait. I've had my eye out for a book by Alaya Dawn Johnson for awhile now, ever since I reviewed her short story "Love Will Tear Us Apart" in the Zombies vs. Unicorns anthology. It was easily one of my favorite stories from the anthology, and one of the most overlooked, IMO; but the writing piqued my interest enough that I've been meaning to pick up a book by Alaya for some time. And then I found out about this, and knew this was the book I wanted to pick up.
The downside: It doesn't come out until March of 2013.
The upside: My birthday is March 1st, which means I now have a perfect excuse to pick this up...
The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
Expected publication: March 2013 by Scholastic
