Me on Waiting on Wednesday (193)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Conspiracy of Us
Author: Maggie Hall
Release Date: January 13, 2015
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile (Penguin imprint)

From Goodreads:

To fight her destiny as the missing heir to a powerful and dangerous secret society, sixteen-year-old Avery West must solve an ancient puzzle in a deadly race across Europe. Forbidden love and code-breaking, masked balls and explosions, destiny and dark secrets collide in this romantic thriller, in the vein of a YA DaVinci Code.

Avery West's newfound family can shut down Prada at the Champs-Elysees when they want to shop in peace, and can just as easily order a bombing when they want to start a war. 

They are part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Circle of Twelve, and Avery is their missing heir. If they discover who she is, some of them will want to use her as a pawn. Some will want her dead. 

To thwart their plans, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the landmarks of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul and through a web of ancient legends and lies. And unless she can stay one step ahead of beautiful, volatile Stellan, who knows she’s more than she seems, and can decide whether to trust mysterious, magnetic Jack, she may be doomed after all.

I just found out about this book, it sounds rather interesting. I'm curious/a bit confused about the missing heir/new family part (what new family??), but it still sounds like something I'll keep an eye out for. Not sure about the what sounds like a love triangle, though.


  1. A popular one around the blogosphere. Love the cover. Love the blurb. Great pick!

  2. I agree with the missing heir, it's kind of confusing. Maybe it's this way on purpose so that we'll read it for sure :)

    Great pick!

  3. I'm not usually a fan of the girl in the dress covers but this one is pretty nice. And the synopsis is intriguing (if not a little confusing). Maybe they'll write a better back cover copy closer to the release date.
