Waiting On Wednesday (2).

Waiting On Wednesday is from Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

So what am I waiting on?

The Painted Boy
by Charles de Lint
Release: 11/11/2010.

From Amazon:

Jay Li should be in Chicago, finishing high school and working at his family's restaurant. Instead, as a born member of the Yellow Dragon Clan, part human, part dragon, like his grandmother, he is on a quest even he does not understand. His journey takes him to Santo del Vado Viejo in the Arizona desert, a town overrun by gangs, haunted by members of other animal clans, perfumed by delicious food, and set to the beat of Malo Malo, a barrio rock band whose female lead guitarist captures Jay's heart. He must face a series of dangerous, otherworldly, and very human challenges to become the man, and dragon, he is meant to be.

I absolutely love Charles de Lint's novels. From The Blue Girl, to Dingo, I'm a fan. I can't wait for this one. If only I could have it sooner!
