Waiting On Wednesday [#49]

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Author: Ellen Hopkins
Expected Publication: September 11, 2012

Love--good and bad--forces three teens' worlds to tilt in a riveting novel from "New York Times "bestselling author Ellen Hopkins.Three teens, three stories--all interconnected through their parents' family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the lives of the teens begin to tilt....

Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year--and decides to keep the baby?

Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister's impending death. Can he accept Alex's love, knowing that his life, too, will be shortened?

Harley is fourteen--a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be.

Love, in all its forms, has crucial consequences in this standalone novel.

I'm really excited for this. So this is the teen companion novel to Ellens adult book Triangles. This book follows the lives of some of the children of the characters of Triangles. I loved Triangles and I'm really excited to read this and see how the teens lives have changed in the face of their parents struggles. 

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I have to admit that i have never read an Ellen Hopkins books, because I'm scared they might be TOO deep for me, ever single one of them looks and sounds beautiful though, so I'll try them one day.

    My WOW

  2. I love Ellen Hopkins!! I didn't realize this was a companion novel - I'll have to check out Triangles. I am starting to notice that the same themes are explored in a couple of her more recent releases so I hope it doesn't become repetitive.

    My WoW

  3. I haven't read any from her and I'm not sure I'm going to read adult fiction soon. I do hope you'll enjoy this read, though.
    Btw, here's mine.
    Happy Wednesday!
