Waiting on Wednesday (35) ~ Book One of the Once Upon a Crime Family Series

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What am I waiting on?

Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt
Releasing May 19th, 2014 from Bloomsbury

Goodreads description:
Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.

Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can't protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.

And in her family's line of work no one can be safe forever.

All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks. 
 Why am I waiting on it?
Doesn't it sound so GOOD? It wants me to read it. Plus, apparently it's a retelling (of what, I'm not sure) and that just makes me more curious. 

EDIT: It's Princess & The Pea! (The author said it's more of a reimagining than a retelling.)

That's my WoW this week! What's yours?
