Waiting on Wednesday: DOON

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a way to spotlight the up and coming new releases that you are looking forward to.

Title: Doon
Author: Carey Corp & Lorie Landon
Publisher: Zondervan
Publication Date: August 20th, 2013

Synopsis:
From GoodReads
DOON…

Veronica doesn't think she's going crazy. But why can't anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna's great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica's daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they've longed for...or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

DOON is loosely based on the premise of the musical Brigadoon, with permission from the ALan Jay Lerner Estate and the Frederick Loewe Foundation.


I can not wait to read this book. Set in Scotland and a twist on a fairytale...of sorts, two fun things right there! I never have seen the movie Brigadoon, I never knew what it was about, but I'm interested to read this story and if I like it, I may just check out the movie.
