Waiting on Wednesday (23)

Waiting on Wednesday is so graciously hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!
This week's pick is...
by Alex Flinn
Release date: February 8th, 2011
Johnny works after school in a shoe repair shop in a swanky hotel in Miami. He loves shoes and is talented; he even aspires to be the next Manolo Blahnik. But the real reason that he is working so hard is because his dad left when he was a baby and he needs to help his mom pay the bills. At least he has his friend, Meg, who works at the hotel coffee shop, to keep him company.
When beautiful Princess Victoriana comes to stay at the hotel, Johnny is thrilled when Victoriana invites him to her suite. There she tells him that her brother has been turned into a frog, and that she needs his help finding him in the Florida Keys. Johnny thinks she is crazy and does not believe her,
until she gives him a magical cloak that immediately transports him to another location. Armed with the cloak and a magical earpiece that can help him talk to other transformed humans Johnny sets out to save the Prince ...
My Thoughts:
First off, loving the cover. It's so simple yet detailed at the same time. Cover love aside, I'm really interested to see what type of character Johnny is. He seems like a passionate and caring guy, but I'm very much so interested in delving into his thoughts as he works day after day in the repair shop. Plus, is there more to his friendship with Meg? Or could he be interested in the princess? I haven't even began to think about what might of happened with her brother that made him turn into a frog. Overall, there seems like there's a lot going on in this novel, and I'm excited to see how it all turns out!
So that's what I'm waiting for this week! It's Wednesday, what are you 'waiting' for?
