Waiting on Wednesday #59

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

Publisher: Greenwillow
Expected Release Date: September 27, 2016
Page Count: 432
Genre: YA

After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.
Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.

 While I haven't read the first book of Like a River Glorious yet, I did pick it up at BEA 2015 and hope to get to it soon! Despite not having read it yet, I've heard a lot of positive reactions to it and the second book would allow me to binge read the series!
