Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
Who I Kissed by Janet Gurtler
Expected Release Date: October 1, 2012
She never thought a kiss could kill…
Samantha didn’t mean to hurt anyone. She was just trying to fit in…and she wanted to make Zee a little jealous after he completely ditched her for a prettier girl. So she kissed Alex. And then he died—right in her arms.
Was she really the only person in the entire school who didn’t know about his peanut allergy? Or that eating a peanut better sandwich and then kissing him would be deadly? Overnight Sam turns into the school pariah and a media sensation explodes. Consumed with guilt, abandoned by her friends, and in jeopardy of losing her swimming scholarship, she’ll have to find a way to forgive herself before anyone else will.

I read and mostly enjoyed Janet Gurtler’s If I Tell, so I’m looking forward to her take on another contemporary YA dilemma. This one has kind of a horrific premise in the sense that the main character has gone through an incredibly sad and traumatizing experience. I’m nervous about how Gurtler’s going to carry this one off, but I can’t wait to find out how it all turns out.
What are you waiting on this week?
