Waiting on Wednesday #28: The Midnight Dance by Nikki Katz

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

The Midnight Dance by Nikki Katz
October 17th 2017, Swoon Reads
YA Contemporary
When the music stops, the dance begins.

Seventeen-year-old Penny is a lead dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and eleven other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep into the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate – and in the only life Penny has never known.

But when flashes of memories, memories of a life very different from the one she thinks she’s been leading, start to appear, Penny begins to question the Grand Teatro and the motivations of the Master. With a kind and attractive kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must find a way to escape the school and uncover the secrets of her past before it’s too late.
I NEED THAT COVER *AHEM* I MEAN BOOK. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous??? I have to admit, I first thought this book was Fantasy but it turns out it's Contemporary, which I'm still cool about because I love contemporaries too. And the love interest is called Cricket??!?!? ♥♥♥ So friggin cute! Cannot wait to read it :D
