Waiting on Wednesday: Nameless (Tales of Beauty and Madness) by Lili St. Crow

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is NAMELESS by Lili St.Crow.  NAMELESS releases on April 4, 2013 from Razorbill.

When Camille was six years old, she was discovered alone in the snow by Enrico Vultusino, godfather of the Seven—the powerful Families that rule magic-ridden New Haven. Papa Vultusino adopted the mute, scarred child, naming her after his dead wife and raising her in luxury on Haven Hill alongside his own son, Nico.

Now Cami is turning sixteen. She’s no longer mute, though she keeps her faded scars hidden under her school uniform, and though she opens up only to her two best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and to Nico, who has become more than a brother to her. But even though Cami is a pampered Vultusino heiress, she knows that she is not really Family. Unlike them, she is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it’s not until she meets the mysterious Tor, who reveals scars of his own, that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her birth…to find out where she comes from and why her past is threatening her now.

New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow thrilled legions of fans with her dark paranormal series Strange Angels. Now she has crafted an evocative update of Snow White, set in a vividly imagined world and populated by unforgettable new characters.
Another fairytale retelling!  Yay!  I haven't read one in book form yet, but I have seen quite a few that come out in 2013 that look great.  Nameless is one on the top of that list for me!  I can't wait to meet Cami and Tor and see what secrets they are both keeping.
Plus, the cover is gorgeous!!!!!  It's eye-catching and gothic--absolutely gorgeous!
