Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Breaking the Spine where book bloggers feature an upcoming release we are eagerly anticipating.
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Release date: September 23, 2014
Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.
Lately it seems this book is EVERYWHERE. I've seen some mixed reviews but all in all it seems most of the people who received ARCs have really enjoyed this book. I've personally never read anything by Scott Westerfeld, though I intend to get around to The Uglies soon, but I've heard only good things about his work. I'm a little unsure about the structure of this book; I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about about the two stories weaving together, but the idea itself intrigues me, so I look forward to seeing how he goes about it. I can't wait to get my hands on this book and find out!
