Wishlist Wednesday: Dust City

A weekly event on my blog where I post about books (not necessarily pre-release or new) that I've just added to my wishlist, along with a little blurb on why I want to read it.
(hosted by Book Chick City & Breaking the Spine)

Dust City
by Robert Paul Weston
release date: 30 September 2010
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
His son, that's who.

Ever since his father's arrest for the murder of Little Red Riding Hood, teen wolf Henry Whelp has kept a low profile in a Home for Wayward Wolves...until a murder at the Home leads Henry to believe his father may have been framed.
Now, with the help of his kleptomaniac roommate, Jack, and a daring she-wolf named Fiona, Henry will have to venture deep into the heart of Dust City: a rundown, gritty metropolis where fairydust is craved by everyone and controlled by a dangerous mob of Water Nixies and their crime boss leader, Skinner.
Can Henry solve the mystery of his family's sinister past? Or, like his father before him, is he destined for life as a big bad wolf?

Why it's on my wishlist
Socially labelled "baddie" searching for redemption before he spirals down into a self-fulfilling prophecy, AND dark fairytale retellings! There's nothing not to love there. Plus, there's not enough versions of the Red Riding Hood tale told from the wolf's POV.

I've heard such great things about this one. I had a chance to review it on an arc tour but I was busy with other things (ew, midterms).

Here's my WoW.

(btw, your blog is absolutely gorrrrgeous. I'm a new follower :D)
