Waiting on Wednesday - You

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The idea is to pick a book that hasn't been released yet that you can't wait to read.

This week my pick is You by Charles Benoit.

Release Date: August 24, 2010

Summary from Amazon:
This wasn't the way it was supposed to go.

You're just a typical fifteen-year-old sophomore, an average guy named Kyle Chase. This can't be happening to you. But then, how do you explain all the blood? How do you explain how you got here in the first place?
There had to have been signs, had to have been some clues it was coming. Did you miss them, or ignore them? Maybe if you can figure out where it all went wrong, you can still make it right. Or is it already too late? Think fast, Kyle. Time's running out. How did this happen?

You is the riveting story of fifteen-year-old Kyle and the small choices he does and doesn't make that lead to his own destruction.

I heard about this book awhile ago through my book club and was interested just because of the cover. After reading the summary, I'm anticipating this release even more. It sounds a little like the movie Memento, but from a teenager's perspective.

  • Preorder this book on Amazon.
  • Read reactions to this book on: Karin's Book Nook, Janet Reid, Literary Agent, and Reading Rants
  • Add this book to your goodreads shelf.

    1. From the descriptions I've heard, it seems to be pretty intense. I'll be looking into this one. Thanks.

    2. I hope that you get your book soon and that it is everything you hope it to be. Here is what I am Waiting on Wednesday for.

    3. This sounds so good. I just love the description, so different. ;)

    4. Interesting! I'm a little worried that it's in 2nd pronoun, but maybe that's just the jacket summary...

    5. This sounds intersting! But that 2nd pronoun scares me too.

    6. This one sounds pretty interesting. Luckily, the release is just a few days away :)

      Here's my WoW pick of the week.

    7. Sounds interesting. Nice pick! My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

    8. I just got this one for review a couple of weeks ago, it is going to be my next book to read.. Great pick! =)
