Waiting On Wednesday #8

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're excited about.

I know Waiting on Wednesday is technically supposed to be about books we can't wait to get our hands on, but I couldn't resist this one. It's not out yet, but I got a chance to read an e-arc and had to pass on the word! Again, sorry, but I couldn't resist.

How to Survive Ancient Spells and Crazy Kings by Laura Pauling:

Goodreads blurb:

Convinced that her grandfather, Zeb, needs help, twelve-year-old Bianca persuades her family to fly to the Mayan ruins of Tikal on a search and rescue mission. Impatient, she and her brainy cousin, Melvin, sneak out in the middle of the night and follow the clues to the ancient Maya city of Etza, where the people haven’t aged in 2,000 years.

The cousins must learn to work together as they face loincloth-wearing skeletons from the underworld, a backstabbing princess, and an ancient prophecy—one that says in three days the city will be destroyed. They’ll find Zeb and zip right out of there. No problem.

Except, Bianca starts to care for her new friends, and Zeb does not want to be rescued. The fact that a crazy king wants to serve Bianca up to the gods as an appetizer is just a minor technicality. But this ancient evil dude has finally met his match.
Seriously this is such a great book and if you like middle grade novels you really need to read it! :-)

To read more about How to Survive Ancient Spells and Crazy Kings stop by Goodreads and don't forget to add it to your to-read shelf.
