Waiting on Wednesday (71)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

The Sharp Time
by Mary O'Connell
To be released: November 08, 2011

Summary from Barnesandnoble.com:
"Sandinista Jones is a high school senior with a punk rock name and a broken heart. The death of her single mother has left Sandinista alone in the world, subject to the random vulnerability of everyday life. When the school system lets her down, her grief and instability intensify, and she ponders a violent act of revenge.
Still, in the midst of her crisis, she gets a job at The Pale Circus, a funky vintage clothing shop, and finds friendship and camaraderie with her coworker, a boy struggling with his own secrets.
Even as Sandinista sees the failures of those with power and authority, she's offered the chance to survive through the redemptive power of friendship. Now she must choose between faith and forgiveness or violence and vengeance."

I don't often find myself wishing for issue books, but this one sounds really good. And the cover is beautiful. From the summary, it sounds like there are some really good things that are addressed in the novel. I look forward to giving this one a try.

What are you waiting on this week?

I'm the opposite of you and I tend to be attracted to "issue" books. This one sounds really interesting. Great choice!

I know what you mean about issue books. Except lately there have been several catching my eye. This one sounds really good too. Thanks for sharing!

It does sound good, though I don't usually gravitate toward issue books either. :) Nice pick
