Waiting on Wednesday
This is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine where bloggers highlight an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.
I haven't done this meme in such a long time. There are always books that I am eagerly anticipating so I really have no excuse...
Anywho, the book I am currently anticipating the most:
This is Where the World Ends
by Amy Zhang
Janie and Micah, Micah and Janie. That's how it's been ever since elementary school, when Janie Vivian moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not. Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie loves art. It's the perfect friendship, as long as no one finds out about it.
But when Janie is date-raped by the most popular guy in school - a guy she's had a crush on for years - she fins herself ostracized by all the people she thought were her friends. Now only Micah seems to believe she's telling the truth. But when even Micah expresses doubt about whether or not she as "asking for it", it leads to disastrous consequences, and Janie Vivian goes missing.
Using nonlinear writing style and dual narrator, Amy Zhang's astonishing second novel masterfully reveals the circumstances surrounding Janie's disappearance.
Release Date: March 22nd 2016
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
After absolutely adoring Amy Zhang's debut novel, Falling Into Place, I need more of her work. It was honestly the most honest and raw book I've ever read. It made me have all the feels. ALL of them. Even the ones that I didn't know existed!
The plotline may put people off a little - YA authors aren't exactly known for their treatment of sensitive topics like date-rape - BUT the way the author handled the dark themes of Falling Into Place has given me completely faith in her. And the possibility of a best friend romance is to much to overlook!
Go preorder it peeps!
