by Jess Vallance

Frances Bird has been a loner for so long that she’s given up on ever finding real friendship. But then she’s asked to show a new girl around school, and she begins to think her luck could finally be changing.

Eccentric, talkative and just a little bit posh, Alberta is not at all how Frances imagined a best friend could be. But the two girls click immediately, and it’s not long before they are inseparable. Frances could not be happier.

As the weeks go on, Frances finds out more about her new best friend – her past, her secrets, her plans for the future – and she starts to examine their friendship more closely.

Is it, perhaps, just too good to be true?
On the surface, I think this book seems like quite a pleasant one about friendships being found in expected places, but I have a feeling that this might take quite a sudden turn and become a little bit dark. Just something about that final sentence in the synopsis, coupled with the cover, suggests that there is a bit of a dark stain in this Alberta's past. I'm really really intrigued to find out what that is, so I doubt it will be long before I cave and decide to go for this one!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
