WoW [12]

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @
Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s WoW feature is:

The S-Word
The S- Word by Chelsea Pitcher
Expected publication: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Gallery Books
[Goodreads] First it was SLUT scribbled all over Lizzie Hart’s locker.
But one week after Lizzie kills herself, SUICIDE SLUT replaces it—in Lizzie's looping scrawl.
Lizzie’s reputation is destroyed when she's caught in bed with her best friend’s boyfriend on prom night. With the whole school turned against her, and Angie not speaking to her, Lizzie takes her own life. But someone isn’t letting her go quietly. As graffiti and photocopies of Lizzie’s diary plaster the school, Angie begins a relentless investigation into who, exactly, made Lizzie feel she didn’t deserve to keep living. And while she claims she simply wants to punish Lizzie’s tormentors, Angie's own anguish over abandoning her best friend will drive her deep into the dark, twisted side of Verity High—and she might not be able to pull herself back out.

Debut author Chelsea Pitcher daringly depicts the harsh reality of modern high schools, where one bad decision can ruin a reputation, and one cruel word can ruin a life. Angie’s quest for the truth behind Lizzie’s suicide is addictive and thrilling, and her razor-sharp wit and fierce sleuthing skills makes her impossible not to root for—even when it becomes clear that both avenging Lizzie and avoiding self-destruction might not be possible.
I seriously can't wait for this one! From the description it just sounds amazing. I'm really excited to read it since I just got approved for the eread of it. Review to come in the next few weeks. I get the feeling this is one of those books I'll be telling everyone who will hear me to read.
So what are you all waiting on? Please share.

  1. Interesting premise - reminds me of The Amanda Project/Invisible I, somehow. Really interested to see how you like it.

    By the way, how is Perks of Being a Wallflower? I got it for Christmas and haven't gotten to it yet.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

  2. I keep looking at this one, but I thus far haven't added it to my TBR list. I think I'm going to wait to see some reviews before I make my final decision.
