The Chaos of Stars
Kiersten White
Expected Publication: September 10, 2013
Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.
That cover is GORGEOUS! I keep staring and staring at it. 

And, ahem, the cover is not only why I'm eagerly anticipating it; I get a nice break from all the Greek, Roman, Celtic, etc. gods. Egypt has always fascinated me and while this story is not about an archaeological adventure, Isadora's lot in life as a human among godly relatives, well... we'll see.

  2. I'm so looking forward to this one; I think Egyptian mythology is a theme that hasn't been touched too much in YA fiction!
