Princess Bookie's Mini-Challenge during her Contest Craze season asks us our most-anticipated upcoming book.
I'm looking forward to The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon which comes out on May 4, 2011.
This is the story of a young white woman with a developmental disability* and an African American* deaf man. They are locked away in an institution. oooh! Anticipate the abuse, culture clash and romance.
Simon's memoir Riding the Bus with My Sister was a favorite years ago. It was later made into an Hallmark Hall of Fame movie.
*politically-correct terms used here, although different terms were used back in 1968
