From Goodreads:

"Devil-at-the-crossroads" folklore finds its way to YA via this moody, magical tale

Blue Riley has wrestled with her own demons ever since the loss of her mother to cancer. But when she encounters a beautiful devil at her town crossroads, it's her runaway sister's soul she fights to save. The devil steals Blue's voice—inherited from her musically gifted mother—in exchange for a single shot at finding Cass.

Armed with her mother's guitar, a knapsack of cherished mementos, and a pair of magical boots, Blue journeys west in search of her sister. When the devil changes the terms of their deal, Blue must reevaluate her understanding of good and evil and open herself to finding family in unexpected places.

In Devil and the Bluebird, Jennifer Mason-Black delivers a heart-wrenching depiction of loss and hope.

I'm very intrigued by the 'devil at the crossroads' story in this book, how Blue will lose her voice in her deal with the devil. I want to know what happens after, what journey Blue ends up on. And I like the cover, the two figures on the guitar, the little things that will probably pop up as Blue searches for her sister. Anyone else looking forward to this? :)
