Paper Bindings - Waiting on Wednesday - These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly
Title: These Shallow Graves
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
Release Date: October 27, 2015
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Genre: YA, Historical

“Set in gilded age New York, These Shallow Graves follows the story of Josephine Montfort, an American aristocrat. Jo lives a life of old-money ease. Not much is expected of her other than to look good and marry well. But when her father dies due to an accidental gunshot, the gilding on Jo’s world starts to tarnish. With the help of a handsome and brash reporter, and a young medical student who moonlights in the city morgue, Jo uncovers the truth behind her father’s death and learns that if you’re going to bury the past, you’d better bury it deep.”


Looks more in the vain of A Northern Light by Donnelly, which is one of my all-time favorite books, than her recent books. I'm so excited for this one.
