Waiting on Wednesday: The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke!

A new series by Katherine Locke I'm looking forward to!

Publication date: September 1st, 2017
Publisher: Albert Whitman Company

When sixteen-year-old Ellie Baum accidentally time-travels via red balloon to 1988 East Berlin, she’s caught up in a conspiracy of history and magic. She meets members of an underground guild in East Berlin who use balloons and magic to help people escape over the Wall—but even to the balloon makers, Ellie’s time travel is a mystery. When it becomes clear that someone is using dark magic to change history, Ellie must risk everything—including her only way home—to stop the process.

Time travelling? Yes! East Berlin post WWII? Yes! I've read another trilogy by Katherine and I really liked it, even though it was adult and not YA but I'm curious to see how she'll write this YA one.
I haven't seen this book around much so it is my job and duty to gladly bring it up to your consciousness. New books = new loves.

Are you excited about The Girl with the Red Balloon?
