'Waiting on Wednesday' is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
As soon as I saw that one of my favourite authors was releasing another book, I immediately added it to my TBR pile. Tabitha Suzuma has written some of the most amazing realistic YA books I have ever read, including a particular favourite of mine, Forbidden. Today, I am waiting on Hurt.
Why? is the burning question on everyone’s lips. Why would a guy like Mathéo Walsh want to die? At seventeen, he is Britain’s most promising diving champion. He is a heartthrob, a straight A student and lives in one of the wealthiest areas of London. He has great mates and is the envy of everyone around him. And most importantly of all, he is deeply in love with his girlfriend, Lola. He has always been a stable, well-adjusted guy...
Until one weekend. A weekend he cannot seem to remember. All he knows is that he has come back a changed person. One who no longer knows how to have fun, no longer wants to spend time with his friends, no longer enjoys diving. Something terrible happened that weekend – something violent and bloody and twisted. He no longer knows who he is. He no longer trusts himself around people: he only wants to hurt, wound and destroy. Slowly, he begins to piece back the buried, fragmented memories, and finds himself staring at the reflection of a monster.
Tormented, Mathéo suddenly finds himself faced with the most devastating choice of his life. Keep his secret, and put those closest to him in terrible danger. Or confess, and lose Lola forever...
Nina want. Nina really want! If the gorgeous boy - I mean, um, cover - and the promising synopsis hasn't got you hooked, then I don't know what will! Already I'm on the edge of my seat from suspense, a feeling Suzuma is good at injecting into her readers - I want to know what happened! Gah!
Whilst I deal with my feels, why don't you write a comment below telling me what you're waiting on this week?
