Waiting on Wednesday (#57) - The Art of Secrets by James Klise

Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine
The Art of Secrets
Goodreads Summary: A Fire Destroys . . .
A Treasure Appears . . .
A Crime Unfolds . . .

When Saba Khan’s apartment burns in a mysterious fire, possibly a hate crime, her Chicago high school rallies around her. Her family moves rent-free into a luxury apartment, Saba’s Facebook page explodes, and she starts (secretly) dating a popular boy. Then a quirky piece of art donated to a school fund-raising effort for the Khans is revealed to be an unknown work by a famous artist, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and Saba’s life turns upside down again. Should Saba’s family have all that money? Or should it go to the students who found the art? Or to the school? And just what caused that fire? Greed, jealousy, and suspicion create an increasingly tangled web as students and teachers alike debate who should get the money and begin to point fingers and make accusations. The true story of the fire that sets events in motion and what happens afterward gradually comes together in an innovative narrative made up of journal entries, interviews, articles, letters, text messages, and other documents.
Why I'm Waiting For It: The cover, The fire, and bullying? I think this one is going to be a great lowkey contemporary this year! I love the concept and I think it's going to be one to play with your emotions as well as the main characters' Saba's emtions. I cannot wait for this one!
The Art of Secrets will be releasing on April 22, 2014 from  Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill!
