Waiting on Wednesday (25)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we showcase the books that we are eagerly anticipating the release of.

This week:
You by Charles Benoit
Release Date: Septer 1st, 2010
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A note from the author:

It's easy to forget that we spend our early teens afraid. We're afraid of fitting in, standing out, or being ignored. We worry that we'll never get a date, never get into college, and never amount to anything. Just like everyone predicts.

It's also easy to discount these fears. Looking back, it seems impossible that we would have stayed awake all night worrying about what someone else thought of our clothes or that we ever doubted our abilities, our potential. But that's only because we know how the story ends.

I wanted to write a book that started with these fears as givens, bottling them in tight and capping them off with that artificial indifference genetically required of all teens. Kyle Chase is not a bad kid. He's not a good kid, either. He's a typical kid. He's any kid. And, at one point in your life, he was you.
Doesn't this sound so unique? It's told in second person, something that I haven't read an entire book in before. And this cover! The broken glass in the shape of a U on the black backround is stunning.

What are you waiting on?


  1. Whoa, whoa, whoa! I absolutely love the sound of this book. It's going to be a hit, for sure. Great pick!
