This week I'm wishing for...

Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher

Summary from Goodreads:

"Secrets, romance, murder and lies: Zoe shares a terrible secret in a letter to a stranger on death row in this second novel from the author of the bestselling debut, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece.

Fifteen-year-old Zoe has a secret—a dark and terrible secret that she can't confess to anyone she knows. But then one day she hears of a criminal, Stuart Harris, locked up on death row in Texas. Like Zoe, Stuart is no stranger to secrets. Or lies. Or murder.

Full of heartache yet humour, Zoe tells her story in the only way she can—in letters to the man in prison in America. Armed with a pen, Zoe takes a deep breath, eats a jam sandwich, and begins her tale of love and betrayal."

Why I'm Wishing for It:
This was actually recommended to me a couple of years ago. I remember at the time thinking nothing of it because of the weird title and the fact that this friends book tastes were quite different to mine. It wasn't until a couple of days ago that this resurfaced for me, and recognising the title, I thought maybe I should take a squiz at the synopsis. And then BOOM. A girl shares her deepest darkest secret, one involving murder, with an inmate on death row. That sounds so interesting. I gotta learn to be less judgemental.

What about you? What are you wishing for this week?
