Mini-Challenge: Most Anticipated

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
