Waiting on Wednesday (23) : The Summer of KILLING and writing OBITUARIES has BEGUN!

So lets start with my Waiting on Wednesday. I love doing this meme every wednesday. "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted @ Bending the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Okay so ONLY TWO books today. Y? Because I am lazy and am in a reading mood :P BUT These books sounds pretty awesome :)
Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard
PUB DATE: September 3rd, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers
Pages: 320
SUMMARY:
Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago. But Jeff's life changes forever when the man he'd thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called 'Project CAIN.'
There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer's DNA. There are others like Jeff -- those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy... even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from.
When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within.
Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it's too late. But will he catch the 'monsters' before becoming one himself?
Why i am WAITING?
1) Um hello?! Murderer's get CLONED and then RELEASED! What?! Does someone have a death wish @_@
2) ghdksk...seriously want to read just to see if Jeff is going to turn into a murderer like the others...(dun,dun, dun)
3) Saw the cover and the creepy double self and was compeled to read more about it. I mean who wouldn't?!
Famous Last Words by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
PUB DATE: July 2nd 2013
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Pages: 288
SUMMARY:
Sixteen-year-old Samantha D’Angelo has death on the brain. Her summer internship at the local newspaper has her writing obituaries instead of soaking up the sun at the beach.
Between Shelby, Sam’s boy-crazy best friend; her boss Harry, a true-blue newspaper man; and AJ, her fellow “intern scum” (aka the cute drummer for a band called Love Gas), Sam has her hands full. But once she figures out what—or who—is the best part of her summer, will she mess it all up?
As Sam learns her way around both the news room and the real world, she starts to make some momentous realizations about politics, ethics, her family, romance, and most important—herself.
Why i am WAITING?
1) This looks like a cute book BUT read the description it seems like much MORE! Imean this grabbed my attention:
Sixteen-year-old Samantha D’Angelo has death on the brain.
2) A newspaper intern that writes obituaries and has to deal with her fellow “intern scum” AJ, a drummer...I mean those in itself make me want to pick this book up!
3) This also seems like it'll be a great summer read and an enlightening read :D
That's what I'm waiting on. What r u waiting on? Leave links!! ^_^
