Wish-List Wednesday: Alyzon Whitestarr


Alyzon Whitestarr by Isobelle Carmody
Out: June 23, 2009

Amazon Summary: Are Alyzon’s new abilities a blessing . . . or a curse?

Alyzon Whitestarr doesn't take after her musically talented father or her nocturnal, artistic mother. In fact, she’s the most normal member of a very eccentric family . . . until the day that an accident leaves her more unique than she ever could have dreamed. Suddenly colors are more vibrant to Alyzon; her memory is flawless; but strangest of all is Alyzon’s sense of smell. Her best friend smells of a comforting sea breeze. She registers her father’s contentment as the sweet scent of caramelized sugar. But why does the cutest guy in school smell so rancid?

With Alyzon’s extrasensory perception comes intrigue and danger, as she becomes aware of the dark secrets and hidden ambitions that threaten her family. In the end, being different might be less of a blessing than a curse. . . .

And is it just me or does the girl on this cover (which I love, by the way) look like Alexz Johnson to anyone else?

I totally want to read this one! Yes! And that cover is so glittertastic! She does kind of look like that person you pointed out but I don't know who she is :/

Alea: I know, it's so pretty. There are so many amazing book covers this year. I love it. Yeah, it was my first thought when I saw the cover...well, today anyway, because I have seen this book before. LOL And Alexz is a singer and is also on this show called Instant Star on The N (same channel as Degrassi).
