Waiting on Wednesday #14 - Never Eighteen

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on:
Never Eighteen
by Megan Bostic
Release Date: January 16th, 2011
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Children's Books

I had the dream again. The one where I’m running. I don’t know what from or where to, but I’m scared, terrified really.

Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. But in the short time he has left there’s one thing he can do: He can try to help the people he loves live—even though he never will.
It’s probably hopeless.
But he has to try. -Goodreads

Once again I am using my "Waiting on Wednesday" post to spotlight a book! I recently had the pleasure of reading Never Eighteen, and I really enjoyed it. I cried through most of it, but it's totally worth the read. It's a wonderful story, and I can't wait to add it to my collection.

What are you WoWing for this week?? Leave a comment with your link so I can check it out!

  4. Oh man. That sounds awful, but like a great read! How sad! Thanks for sharing. I had seen the cover somewhere, but wasn't sure what it was about.

  5. The cover is cute. From the synopsis this book seems have a sad story

  6. It's good to cry sometimes. Glad you liked it!

    Here’s My WOW!

  7. I haven't heard of this one, but it sounds very intriguing. Thank you for sharing. :)


  8. Death seems to be a popular topic in YA fiction. Chris Crutcher, Sonya Sones, and others have written popular books about characters who are dying and the author from my teenage years, Lurlene McDaniel, usually writes about terminally ill kids too. This sounds like a really intense and emotional story. Thanks for highlighting it.

  9. Wow this one sounds really interesting - I haven't heard of it before! Thanks for putting it on my radar!

    Check out my WOW this week!

  10. Sounds like it could break my heart *sighs* I'm always wary of those books. But if you say it's good then I'm putting it on my reading list :)

  24. Hi Christy!

    Thanks so much for stopping by to see me earlier, I appreciate it :)

    Oh wow, this book's synopsis sounds soooo sad! I don't know if I could read something where the main character is ultimately doomed-- this is probably why I have yet to pick up Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver- the summary sounds so tragic, and she already made me cry when I read Delirium haha... but I hope that you enjoy this one!

    Lea @ LC's Adventures in Libraryland

  25. Great pick. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I have this one from netgalley hoping to read it soon. I'll probably cry too.

  26. I saw this one on NetGalley but I wasn't sure about it... as it looks like a freaking tear jerker!!!

    My Wow Post!

  27. I usually avoid books that make me cry but this sounds so bitter sweet! Great pick!

  28. I just finished a couple weeks back! I'm having the author post post and interview next week on the blog.

    For some reason I couldn't connect with Austin and I cannot figure out why...The book was good, but I thought I should have been crying...haha

  29. It sounds awesome, is it paranormal? Has my interest :o]

    Kristi's WOW

  30. Aww gosh, now I have to make sure I have a full box of tissues on standby whenever I get to read this! It sounds great, definitely an emotional read. So glad you enjoyed it!

  31. I saw this a few days ago. Thx for the reminder!

  32. A tear-jerker read might be what I need this weekend. Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog.
