Weekly Finds: 12/13/09

Only one this week.  I've been continuing to hold off on buying too many books so that I can catch up on the ones I already have.

Tell Me Something True by Leila Cobo, received from a contest at Drey's Library offered by Hachette Books.

From the back of the book:  Gabriella Richards feels betrayed.  Between her doting father in Hollywood and her grandmother's aristocratic family in Cali, Columbia, a few facts have been carefully hidden about her mother, whose tragic death shattered a picture-perfect marriage.  Gabriella, now a classical pianist, has kept one foot in her grandmother's elegant, guarded world, visiting her every year.  But this trip changes everything.  In a dusty closet in a faded mansion, Gabriella finds her mother's diary, written just for her.  And at a party of Cali's young and hip, she meets a man she can't resist.  Soon, between her mother's shocking confessions and her new lover's secretive life, Gabriella will enter a season of pleasure, pain, and awakening - as she discovers that things are not always true or false, and that the words that matter most can be the most dangerous ones of all...
