This week I'm waiting for You Against Me by Jenny Downham.
Here's the summary from Goodreads:
If someone hurts your sister and you’re any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother’s accused of a terrible crime but says he didn’t do it, you defend him, don’t you?
When Mikey’s sister claims a boy assaulted her, his world begins to fall apart. When Ellie’s brother is charged with the offence, her world begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide.This is a brave and unflinching novel from the bestselling author of Before I Die. It’s a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it’s a book about love.
I have been waiting for this book FOREVER. I had it on my to-read list way before it's first release in December 2010, and could not figure out why I couldn't get my hands on it. Turns out it was released in the UK then, and we won't get it until September 13th, 2011, from David Fickling Books. I suppose I could order a UK edition, but that seems like cheating to me. So I will wait patiently. Anyway, I loved Before I Die and think that I'll love this one, too!
What are you waiting for?
Enjoy your reading!
