[Waiting on Wednesday]: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

Hosted by: Jill @ Breaking the Spine
Waiting on Wednesday asks you to talk about a novel you're eagerly anticipating that hasn't been released.

Here's one I'm waiting on:

The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
To be published on January 13, 2015 by Putnam Juvenile

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.

With The Conspiracy of Us, the cover definitely played a role in grasping my attention. The model on the character looks confused and unsure standing in the middle of this compass-like diagram on the ground. I found that ironic. And then ... there was the YA DaVinci Code reference. After I read that, I pre-ordered. And next thing I knew I was writing this post ...
