Crewel by Gennifer Albin
To be Published: October 16th 2012 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Incapable. Awkward. Artless.

That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail. Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.  Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape. Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.

Add it on...

Why I'm Hyperventilating: 

This book looks LOVELY! First off the colors on the cover are so pretty and give this really cool impression! and then if you read the synopsis...oh WOW. Peeps does not that sounds absolutely fantabulistically AWESOME? Ack! So far there is great blurb about this book so I'm sure it's going to be AMAZING! Yikes! Lovely Lovely Lovely EEEP! Okay enough, let's be realistic here: Guild. Weave TIME. Spinster. No Turning Back. Ooh-la-la!
