Waiting on Wednesday: Untold Story by Monica Ali

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight an upcoming release you can't wait to read. 

Untold Story: A NovelMy pick this week is Untold Story by Monica Ali. As soon as I heard the concept of this book, I was hooked:
"What if Princess Diana hadn't died? What if the tragedy in the Alma Tunnel had never happened, and she were still alive today? Where would she be, and what would she be doing? This title takes the life of the world's most famous woman as a point of departure, imagining a future and examining the nature of celebrity, and the meaning of identity."
It sounds fantastic right? Those fortunate residents of the U.K. can read this book on March 31, 2011, but it won't be published in the U.S. until June 28, 2011. You can pre-order it from Amazon in the meantime.

Update: I loved it! My full review is now available.

  5. Oooo this one does sound interesting. I loved Princess Di and was saddened by her loss. I'm really jealous of the Brits getting it before me, but I will be anticipating this too. Thanks for sharing.

    My WOW is a little different.
