Friday Finds (01/01/10)

I'm a day late. But I was kind of tired on New Year's Day (I'm still recovering from the surgery I had earlier this week).

Friday Finds at the Store is a meme hosted by Jennay at My Tea Time is Book Time. It is totally easy and everyone can join. Basically just post the books you found at the bookstore or library. Now others can see the great finds you had and maybe they will pick it up on their next bookstore/library run. HAPPY readings!!!

From the back cover of A Song for Summer by Eva Ibbotson

Eighteen-year-old Ellen never expected the Hallendorf School to be, well, quites so unusual. After all, her life back in England with her suffragette mother and liberated aunts certainly couldn't be called normal. But buried deep in the beautiful Austrian countryside, Ellen discovers an eccentric world occupied by wild children and even wilder teachers, experimental dancers, and a tortoise on wheels. And then there is the particularly intriguing, enigmatic, and very handsome Marek, part-time gardener and fencing teacher. Ellen is instantly attracted to the mysterious gardener, but Hitler's Reich is already threatening their peaceful world. Only when she discovers Marek's true identity and his dangerous mission does Ellen realize the depth of her feelings for him---and the danger their newfound love faces in the shadow of war.
What did you find???

(I bought this from a store called Fully Booked)
