Waiting on Wednesday (15) : Severed Fault Line of Girls!

So lets start with my Waiting on Wednesday. I haven't done a meme on wednesday "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted @ Bending the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider
PUB DATE: June 4th 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen
Pages: 330
SUMMARY:
Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.
No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.
But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?
Robyn Schneider’s Severed Heads, Broken Hearts is a lyrical, witty, and heart-wrenching novel about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings
Why i am WAITING?
1) It's a guy POV and I've heard the fist chapter...@_@ Addicted!
2) I LOVE this concept: "Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them"
3) Also a VERY INTERESTING cover =)
Fault Line by Christa Desir
PUB DATE: November 12th 2013
Publisher: SimonPulse
Pages: ---
SUMMARY:
Ben could date anyone he wants, but he only has eyes for the new girl — sarcastic free-spirit, Ani. Luckily for Ben, Ani wants him too. She’s everything Ben could ever imagine. Everything he could ever want.
But that all changes after the party. The one Ben misses. The one Ani goes to alone.
Now Ani isn’t the girl she used to be, and Ben can’t sort out the truth from the lies. What really happened, and who is to blame?
Ben wants to help her, but she refuses to be helped. The more she pushes Ben away, the more he wonders if there’s anything he can do to save the girl he loves.
Why i am WAITING?
1) OMG, this book just sounds intense and very emotional! My kind of read
2) I love that it's NOT a completely happy story, i mean @ first it sounds perfect but THEN BAM EVERYTHING CHANGES!
3) Then that cover is PERFECT! The lighter and spark and the colors give the book a darker more real feel.
Fault Line by Christa Desir
PUB DATE: March 19th 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Pages: 352
SUMMARY:
Reminiscent of the Elizabeth Smart case, Pretty Girl-13 is a disturbing and powerful psychological mystery about a girl who must piece together the story of her kidnapping and captivity.
Angie Chapman was thirteen years old when she ventured into the woods alone on a Girl Scouts camping trip. Now she's returned home…only to find that it's three years later and she's sixteen-or at least that's what everyone tells her.
What happened to the past three years of her life?
Angie doesn't know.
But there are people who do-people who could tell Angie every detail of her forgotten time, if only they weren't locked inside her mind. With a tremendous amount of courage, Angie embarks on a journey to discover the fragments of her personality, otherwise known as her "alters."
As she unearths more and more about her past, she discovers a terrifying secret and must decide: When you remember things you wish you could forget, do you destroy the parts of yourself that are responsible?
Liz Coley's alarming and fascinating psychological mystery is a disturbing-and ultimately empowering-page-turner about accepting our whole selves, and the healing power of courage, hope, and love.
Why i am WAITING?
1) WOAH, just WOAH @_@ Kidnapping and memory loss... CRAZY!
2) Really interested in that "alters" part. Sounds like different "hers" [Confusing right? ;)]
3) also that COVER is pretty creepy and enticing. PLUS PURPLE DRESS!
That's what I'm waiting on. What r u waiting on? Leave links!
