Waiting on Wednesday (63) — The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors

Posted by on November 30, 2011
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

The Sweetest Spell

A lyrical and romantic reimaging of The Ugly Duckling for teens.

Emmeline Thistle has always had a mysterious bond with cows, beginning on the night of her birth, when the local bovines saved the infant cast aside to die in the forest. But Emmeline was unaware that this bond has also given her a magical ability to transform milk into chocolate, a very valuable gift in a kingdom where chocolate is more rare and more precious than gold or jewels. Then one day Owen Oak, a dairyman’s son, teaches Emmeline to churn milk into butter – and instead she creates a delicious chocolate confection that immediately makes her a target for every greedy, power-hungry person in the kingdom of Anglund. Only Owen loves Emmeline for who she truly is, not her magical skill. But is his love enough to save her from the danger all around her?

The Sweetest Spell will be released on August 21st, 2012 by Walker Children’s.
This is another lovely that qualifies for the SARC.

  1. Okay, provided it works on soy milk just as well as normal, I totally want her magical ability haha. Mmmmm! Besides being a book that will no doubt make me gain weight after influencing me to run to the fridge after every chapter, it sounds SO GOOD and I cannot flipping wait to read it. But ugh, what is with the release dates so far away? August? Sigh.

    My WoW

  2. Um. How do I get this ability? Because I would very much like to be able to turn milk into chocolate, that would make me a very happy girl:) This one sounds really whimsical and different, thanks for sharing Hafsah!

  3. I saw this one in the Bloomsbury catalog a couple of weeks ago, and I have to admit I squealed a little when I saw it. I always love Suzanne's books, and this one seems like it will be no exception. Great pick! :)
