Waiting on Wednesday: The Blazing Star

The Blazing Star by Imani Josey
Publication Date: December 6th, 2016

Sixteen-year-old Portia White is used to being overlooked—after all, her twin sister Alex is a literal genius.

But when Portia holds an Egyptian scarab beetle during history class, she takes center stage in a way she never expected: she faints. Upon waking, she is stronger, faster, and braver than before. And when she accidentally touches the scarab again? She wakes up in ancient Egypt—her sister and an unwitting freshman in tow.

Great.

Mysterious and beautiful, Egypt is more than they could have ever imagined from their days in the classroom. History comes alive as the three teens realize that getting back to the present will be the most difficult thing they’ve ever done. Stalked by vicious monsters called Scorpions, every step in the right direction means a step closer to danger.  
As Portia and the girls discover that they’re linked to the past by more than just chance, they have to decide what it truly means to be yourself, to love your sister, and to find your way home.

 When I saw the cover reveal on Twitter, I knew that I had to read this one. I mean, look how gorgeous it is!! It also sounds like it will be quite the adventure, and I love books that have a family message in them. What do you think?

What are you waiting on?

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking The Spine.
