Waiting on Wedneday: Becoming Jinn

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

 I am waiting on:

Becoming Jinn (Becoming Jinn, #1)
Title: Becoming Jinn
Author: Lori Goldstein
Series: Becoming Jinn #1
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Publication Date: April 21, 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, 
Forget everything you thought you knew about genies!
Azra has just turned sixteen, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold thanks to the brand-new silver bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers but the reality of a life of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling class of Jinn known as the Afrit.
To the humans she lives among, she’s just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach, navigating the fryer and her first crush. But behind closed doors, she’s learning how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny.
Mentored by her mother and her Zar “sisters”, Azra discovers she may not be quite like the rest of her circle of female Jinn . . . and that her powers could endanger them all. As Azra uncovers the darker world of becoming Jinn, she realizes when genies and wishes are involved, there’s always a trick.
Why am I waiting?
It has been so long since I read a book involving Jinn, and even then this book subject is one not often used. I think it is going to be a refreshing read, and besides who did not grow up hoping to find a genie in a magic lamp. I also love that this takes on Jinn not being the perfect life everyone thinks it is, and that should defiantly create an intriguing story for the main character, Azra.

What are you waiting on?
