Wish List Wednesday (80)

Small Medium at Large by Joanne Levy, July 3, 2012. Published by Bloomsbury.
Lilah Bloom hears dead people. And boy, are they annoying!

After she's hit by lightning at a wedding, twelve-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: she hears dead people. Among them, there's her over-opinionated bubby Dora; a comically prissy fashion designer; and an approval-seeking clown who livens up a seance. With Bubby Dora leading the way, these and other sweetly imperfect ghosts haunt Lilah through seventh grade, and help her face her one fear: talking to and possibly going to the seventh-grade dance with her big crush, Andrew Finkel.
Why: Because Small Medium at Large sounds like a fun read, and we all need more books like that.

Aqua 1 by Kozue Amano, 2007. Published by Tokyopop.
After 150 years of terraforming, Aqua, the planet formerly known as Mars, now has over 90 percent of its surface covered in water. A young girl named Akari Mizunashi arrives at the city of Neo-Venezia, an exact replica of the old Italian city of Venice, hoping to become an Undine, the most coveted job on Aqua. Follow Akari's adventures as she discovers the wonders of Aria in this prequel to the popular Aria anime and manga series.
Why: I think iot sounds interesting, and its been on my wishlist for ages.

  1. Small Medium at Large is the cutest name ever.
    And Aqua actually sounds great - I'll have to see if I can find it at Book Off when I go back to Japan. I've been looking for a new manga to read.
