Waiting on Wedneaday (6): Dust City by Robert Paul Weston

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine where you can post about upcoming books you're looking forward to.

I just found this book recently and can't wait for it. It's one of those delicious twists on a fairytale and I am drooling all over myself to read it.

Dust City by Robert Paul Weston
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

His son, that's who.

Ever since his father's arrest for the murder of Little Red Riding Hood, teen wolf Henry Whelp has kept a low profile in a Home for Wayward Wolves . . . until a murder at the Home leads Henry to believe his father may have been framed.

Now, with the help of his kleptomaniac roommate, Jack, and a daring she-wolf named Fiona, Henry will have to venture deep into the heart of Dust City: a rundown, gritty metropolis where fairydust is craved by everyone and controlled by a dangerous mob of Water Nixies and their crime boss leader, Skinner.
Can Henry solve the mystery of his family's sinister past? Or, like his father before him, is he destined for life as a big bad wolf?

I so want to be afraid of the big bad wolf! The cover didn't catch my attention (but it was small and I couldn't see the wolf eyes) as much as the description did. The nice thing about this cover is it's boy friendly. Any way, I'm addicted to fairytale re-tellings so this one is right up my alley. Can't wait!

Dust City comes out Sept. 30, 2010.
