Waiting on Wednesday # 24 ~ The Painted Boy

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick:

Summary from
Jay Li should be in Chicago, finishing high school and working at his familyÕs restaurant. Instead, as a born member of the Yellow Dragon Clan -part human, part dragon, like his grandmother- he is on a quest even he does not understand. His journey takes him to Santo del Vado Viejo in the Arizona desert, a town overrun by gangs, haunted by members of other animal clans, perfumed by delicious food, and set to the beat of Malo Malo, a barrio rock band whose female lead guitarist captures JayÕs heart. He must face a series of dangerous, otherworldlyÑand very humanÑchallenges to become the man, and dragon, he is meant to be. This is Charles de Lint at his best!
