Title: Tris & Izzie
Author: Mette Ivie Harrison
Publisher: Egmont USA (October 11, 2011)
A modern retelling of the German fairytale "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.
So for this week's Waiting on Wednesday, I decided to pick something that I thought was pretty unique. This book seems like it will have the right balance of light-heartedness and seriousness, plus I'm guessing the romance will be awesome. I love it that it's going to be a fairytale retelling, we need to have more of such, seriously. Really can't wait for this one!
