Waiting On Wednesday (70) Charm & Strange


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Hardcover, 224 pages
Expected publication: June 11th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin

Synopsis From Goodreads:

When you’ve been kept caged in the dark, it’s impossible to see the forest for the trees. It’s impossible to see anything, really. Not without bars . . .

Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself.

He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.

He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable.

Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present.

Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths—that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying.

Doesn't this sound completely creepy and awesome?

What are you waiting on this week?

  4. Wow - 224 pages is rather short! I usually don't read a lot of books under 300 pages (it's not a rule, but it always works out that I read longer books, sometimes more than 400 pages!). The cover is very simplistic, which is kind of nice :D

    Here is my WoW post!

    1. I really don't mind short books if the story is good. I seriously have a problem with 400+ page books because it seems like it takes me forever to read them!
