"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Today's Waiting on Wednesday is about a book I have read, so obviously I'm not the one waiting for it! But I think all of YOU will be! This book was so fantastic. You all have to promise me (*pinky promise*) that you're going to buy this book the minute it comes out. I promise you will fall in love with it the way I have. If you are a member of NetGalley (http://www.netgalley.com/), you can get it on there!
Here is the cover and description of this wonderful book:
by Sarah Wylie
Releases on June 5, 2012
Sixteen-year-old Dani is convinced she has nine lives. As a child she twice walked away from situations where she should have died. But Dani’s twin, Jena, isn’t so lucky. She has cancer and might not even be able to keep her one life. Dani’s father is in denial. Her mother is trying to hold it together and prove everything’s normal. And Jena is wasting away.
To cope, Dani sets out to rid herself of all her extra lives. Maybe they’ll be released into the universe and someone who wants to live more than she does will get one. Someone like Jena. But just when Dani finds herself at the breaking point, she’s faced with a startling realization. Maybe she doesn’t have nine lives after all. Maybe she really only ever had one.
What's your pick this week?
