Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
Enter Stage Right.

All her world's a stage.

Beatrice Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater.

She's not an orphan, but she has no parents.

She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.

Until now.

Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book--an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family--and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known

My Thoughts: Aside from the fact that this cover is absolutely gorgeous (and I am saddened that ARCs won't have this fantastic cover on them), I absolutely love the plotline. I'm a huge theatre fan, as some of you know from watching my VCA Trilogy Part 1, in which I talked about how I found Ruby while at stage crew, so this is right up my alley. I'm so excited to get it!

Release date should be around July 7, 2009.
