Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine where I talk about books that I am eagerly anticipating!
This week, my WoW pick is…..This Is Where The World Ends by Amy Zhang
Published by Harper Collins on March 22, 2016
Genres: Young Adult
Janie and Micah, Micah and Janie. That’s how it’s been ever since elementary school, when Janie Vivian moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not. Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie loves art. It’s the perfect friendship, as long as no one finds out about it.
But when Janie is date-raped by the most popular guy in school—a guy she’s had a crush on for years—she finds herself ostracized by all the people she thought were her friends. Now only Micah seems to believe she’s telling the truth. But when even Micah expresses doubt about whether or not she was “asking for it,” it leads to disastrous consequences, and Janie Vivian goes missing.
Using a nonlinear writing style and dual narrators, Amy Zhang’s astonishing second novel masterfully reveals the circumstances surrounding Janie’s disappearance.
I was drawn to the cover, to be honest, but after I read the jacket copy I was taken in by the plot. This book sounds like it will be relevant and very emotional.
