Waiting on Wednesday #34: Palace of Spies by Sarah Zettel

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
Palace of Spies by Sarah Zettel

Expected Publication: November 5, 2013
by: Harcourt Children's Books.

Goodreads Blurb:
A warning to all young ladies of delicate breeding who wish to embark upon lives of adventure: Don't.

Sixteen-year-old Peggy is a well-bred orphan who is coerced into posing as a lady in waiting at the palace of King George I. Life is grand, until Peggy starts to suspect that the girl she's impersonating might have been murdered. Unless Peggy can discover the truth, she might be doomed to the same terrible fate. But in a court of shadows and intrigue, anyone could be a spy—perhaps even the handsome young artist with whom Peggy is falling in love . . . History and mystery spark in this effervescent series debut.

Why I'm excited:
This combines spies and royalty in a historical setting... that's all I needed to know! Count me in! I do have to say that I like the first cover better, but I still want to read the story inside!
