'Waiting On' Wednesday #22: Half Lost by Sally Green
The final book in the Half Bad Trilogy by Sally Green is gorgeous. Of course, the cover comes in a lovely metallic shade with a silhouette tree on it. The previous two novels in the series, followed the same graphic design. As a collector, remaining true to the other covers makes me immensely happy. SHINY!
Also, the trilogy holds two Guinness World Records: The Most Translated Book by a Debut Author, Pre-publication — selling in a whopping 45 languages before it was released in the U.K. — and Most Translated Children’s Book By a Debut Author. Fox 2000 purchased the film rights before the first book, Half Bad, hit shelves and to show how serious they were about its development, Fox 2000 hired Karen Rosenfelt to produce. Rosenfelt comes from that other pretty well know YA-fantasy franchise — Twilight. Yeah… you know, it’s no big deal.
