Waiting on Wednesday: All We Have is Now by Lisa Schroeder

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:

All We Have is Now by Lisa Schroeder

Expected Release Date: July 28, 2015

What do you do with your last day on earth?

Just over twenty-four hours are left until an asteroid strikes North America, and for Emerson and everyone else who didn’t leave, the world will end. But Emerson’s world already ended when she ran away from home. Since then, she has lived on the streets, relying on her wits and on her friend Vince to help her find places to sleep and food to eat.

The city’s quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then Emerson and Vince meet Carl, who tells them he has been granting people’s wishes — and gives them his wallet full of money.

Suddenly, this last day seems full of possibility. Emerson and Vince can grant a lot of wishes in one last day — maybe even their own.

(summary via Goodreads)

I’m a sucker for end of the world stuff, and I love the idea of exploring the last day on earth from this perspective.  I hope it’s done well and that it’s properly sad–something about the last line on the blurb makes me a little nervous that the book won’t end the way it maybe should–but either way, I’m sure this will be an absolutely riveting read.  I can’t wait!

What are you waiting on this week?
