Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This is my first Waiting onWednesday pick so I wanted to make sure it was a really great one!
I have chosen Counting Backwards, the debut novel of Laura Lascarso, to be released on 14th August 2012.
Three weeks ago I tried to run away from home. Now all I want is to go back.
When troubled Taylor Truwell is caught with a stolen car and lands in court for resisting arrest, her father convinces the judge of an alternative to punishment: treatment in a juvenile psychiatric correctional facility. Sunny Meadows is anything but the easy way out, and Taylor has to fight hard just to hold on to her sanity as she battles her parents, her therapist, and vicious fellow patients. But even as Taylor struggles to hold on to her stubborn former self, she finds herself relenting as she lets in two unlikely friends-Margo, a former child star and arsonist, and AJ, a mysterious boy who doesn’t speak.
This sounds like pretty gripping stuff! I love reading romance novels and getting that feeling of satisfaction when the happy ever after happens but every now and again I like to mix things up and read something a little deeper and this sounds like just that sort of book. Plus I just love the cover!
What is your WoW pick for this week? I would love to hear!
