Waiting on Wednesday - The Way to Stay in Destiny by Augusta Scattergood

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles whose release we are eagerly anticipating.

The Way to Stay in Destiny by Augusta Scattergood. 192 p. Scholastic Inc., January 6, 2015. 9780545538244.

Publisher synopsis: When Theo gets off a bus in Destiny, Florida, he's left behind the only life he's ever known. Now he's got to live with Uncle Raymond, a Vietnam War vet and a loner who wants nothing to do with this long-lost nephew. Thank goodness for Miss Sister Grandersole's Boarding House and Dance School. The piano that sits in Miss Sister's dance hall calls to Theo. He can't wait to play those ivory keys. When Anabel arrives things get even more enticing.  This feisty girl, a baseball fanatic, invites Theo on her quest to uncover the town's connection to old-time ball players rumored to have lived there years before. A mystery, an adventure, and a musical exploration unfold as this town called Destiny lives up to its name.

I did so love Ms. Scattergood's debut, Glory Be and am so looking forward to this.
