Waiting on Wednesday: Tombstone Tea by Joanne Dahme

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for also

My choice this week is Tombstone Tea by Joanne Dahme. I found this book the other day on the net and once I saw the cover, Yes!!!!! the cover looks awesome. I was drawn to it and had to check it out. Then the synopsis got me.


Tombstone Tea by Joanne Dahme
Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 272 pages
Publisher: Running Press Kids (August 24, 2009)


This title features a page-turning tale in which a young girl accidentally discovers her ability to communicate with the spirits of the dead - she must use this newfound power to bring peace to a cemetery full of disgruntled ghosts. In order to fit in at her new high school and be accepted in the 'in crowd', Amy accepts a dare to spend one night in a local cemetery. Once inside the gate of the dark and frightening burial ground, Amy meets Paul, a handsome boy who works as a caretaker at the cemetery. Paul explains to Amy about Tombstone Tea: a performance in which actors impersonate the people buried in the cemetery. The actors are supposedly rehearsing on this particular evening, but Amy discovers that they are actually ghosts of the deceased. Will Amy be able to settle the ancient dispute that creates danger and unrest within the cemetery walls?

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
