Tina is waiting on…

The Glass Republic (The Skyscraper Throne #2) by Tom Pollock
Release Date: August 1, 2013

Why Tina is waiting for it:
I fell in love with Pollock’s first novel, a wonder of YA urban fantasy called The City’s Son. Everything seemed so grim, but Beth, our protagonist, was strong and brave, even when she acted on impulse with little reason to do so. And her friend Pen had the most heartbreaking story of all, and I am so happy that this sequel focuses on her story, bringing us back to the mirror world and all their prissy nonsense. Pen was probably the one who was hurt the most in the first novel, and she is changed, both in appearance and in attitude (aside from Filius, but his circumstances are different). I am very eager to see where Pollock takes Pen next, and also to be immersed in the mirror world the way the author took us to London in The City’s Son.
