Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This isn't something that I will be doing every week unless there's a book I really want to let people know about. I know that it isn't Wednesday, but I have a book that can't wait and I have another book I'll be posting Wednesday. So you get two this week. :)
Release Date: Aug. 24, 2010
Summary: (from harperteen.com)
This wasn't the way it was supposed to go.
You're just a typical fifteen-year-old sophomore, an average guy named Kyle Chase. This can't be happening to you. But then, how do you explain all the blood? How do you explain how you got here in the first place?
There had to have been signs, had to have been some clues it was coming. Did you miss them, or ignore them? Maybe if you can figure out where it all went wrong, you can still make it right. Or is it already too late? Think fast, Kyle. Time's running out. How did this happen?
You is the riveting story of fifteen-year-old Kyle and the small choices he does and doesn't make that lead to his own destruction.
In his stunning young-adult debut, Charles Benoit mixes riveting tension with an insightful—and unsettling—portrait of an ordinary teen in a tale that is taut, powerful, and shattering.
I'm not quite sure how I ended up on the HarperTeen website tonight, but I'm glad I did. This book may not sound all that intense, but some lucky ducks have already gotten ahold of it and wrote reviews on goodreads....and they have quite some opinions. Charles Benoit is a debut author even though this book isn't featured in the challenge. I've let Kristi at The Story Siren know about this book via twitter so if she gets that tweet she may add it to the list. I personally will be reading it as soon as it comes out! I cannot wait to get my hands on it. This may be one of those books I end up buying if I don't win it.
It's written in second person, and I've never read a book like that so it'll be a little strange. Hopefully I won't get confused with that. (A preview of that second person is in the summary.)
Do you have a WoW for this week?
