Waiting on Wednesday - A Pocketful of Eyes

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine to "spotlight upcoming releases". Whilst there hasn't been anything I've been really, really hanging out for over the past couple of months, I have to say I'm kind of ridiculously excited for Lili Wilkinson's A Pocketful of Eyes.

From Allen & Unwin: When a dead body is discovered at the Museum, Beatrice May Ross is determined to use her sleuthing skills to solve the case. Sharp, sassy YA crime-fiction, with a dash of romance and a splash of funny.
Bee is in her element working in the taxidermy department at the Museum of Natural History, but her summer job turns out to be full of surprises:
A dead body in the Red Rotunda. A mysterious Museum benefactor. A large stuffed tiger in the Catacombs. A handsome boy with a fascination for unusual animal mating habits.
And a pocketful of glass eyes.
Can Bee sift through the clues to discover whether her mentor really committed suicide ... or is there a murderer in their midst?

To be published by Allen & Unwin in May 2011

Not only is the cover absolutely gorgeous, but I'm a big fan of Lili's writing and A Pocketful of Eyes has something Veronica Mars-ish about it, which is a big plus in my book - can't wait to read it!

What books are you most eagerly awaiting?

Cute cover! I like the summary, although I never was a real fan of Veronica Mars, this novel seems to have potential! Here's my WOW.
