Devil and the Bluebird, by Jennifer Mason-Black
Publication: May 17, 2016, by Amulet Books
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy
Pages: 336

Blue Riley has wrestled with her own demons ever since the loss of her mother to cancer. But when she encounters a beautiful devil at her town crossroads, it’s her runaway sister’s soul she fights to save. The devil steals Blue’s voice—inherited from her musically gifted mother—in exchange for a single shot at finding Cass.
Armed with her mother’s guitar, a knapsack of cherished mementos, and a pair of magical boots, Blue journeys west in search of her sister. When the devil changes the terms of their deal, Blue must reevaluate her understanding of good and evil and open herself to finding family in unexpected places.
In Devil and the Bluebird, Jennifer Mason-Black delivers a heart-wrenching depiction of loss and hope.

Ooooh... A western-like fantasy mixed with a pair of magical boots and grief! I certainly need this book in my life! I adore the cover and use of the guitar and it will be nice to read a book by an author whose books are completely new to me. I luckily found this through suggestions and Goodreads and knew that it was for me. AGH. The title is very poetic too!

What are you anticipating the most this week? Do you enjoy books about grief? How much can you take?
