Waiting on Wednesday #2

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


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



Release date: 2nd December, 2010

Description: If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's been accused of a terrible crime and you're the main witness, then you banish all doubt and defend him. Isn't that what families do? When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her at a party, his world of work and girls begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the crime, but says he didn't do it, her world of revision, exams and fitting in at a new school begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide. Brave and unflinching, this is a novel of extraordinary skillfulness and almost unbearable tension. It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it's a book about love - for one's family and for another.

Why? It will probably make me cry and completely get under my skin but the last line in the description 'it's a book about love' is what sold me. 

What are you waiting on?

OMG I can't wait for this book either!! It sounds real good. I loved the first line in the description. *o*
(I'm just wondering why it's not even pre-orderable on the Book Depository when it's a UK book. :( And the paperback is all the way in July!)

AJ - I found it pre-orderable on TBD but only in hardback cover.
