Waiting on Wednesday *8*

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's a weekly look at upcoming releases that we're excited about!


I've heard so much good stuff about this book, that I just have to read it. And I've heard from a bunch of people that it reminded them of the movie Thirteen, and I adore that movie, so that just makes me want to read it even more.

by Amy Reed
Release Date: October 6, 2009
From Amazon:
When Cassie moves from the tiny town where she has always lived to a suburb of Seattle, she is determined to leave her boring, good-girl existence behind. This is Cassie's chance to stop being invisible and become the kind of girl who's worth noticing.

Stepping into her new identity turns out to be easier than Cassie could have ever imagined...one moment, one choice, will change everything.
Cassie's new existence both thrills and terrifies her. Swept into a world of illicit parties and social landmines, she sheds her virginity, embraces the numbness she feels from the drugs, and floats through it all, knowing that she is now called beautiful. She ignores the dangers of her fast-paced life?but she can't sidestep the secrets and the cruelty.

Cassie is trapped in a swift downward spiral tinged with violence and abuse, and no one—not even the one person she thought she could trust—can help her now.

  1. I love all the negative space on the cover - it makes it simple yet able to pop! I haven't heard much about this book, but I think there is a tour for it (or maybe there already was) so I'll have to take a look at some of the reveiws...
