Waiting on Wednesday #8

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Charm and Strange

By Stephanie Kuehn

Publication Date: June 11, 2013

Goodreads Summary:

Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself.

He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.

But he’s also part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a family secret so painful it led three children to do the unthinkable.

Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles the pain of his past and the isolation of his present. Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild thoughts inside his mind or learn that surviving can mean more than not dying.

So what is your Waiting on Wednesday selection?

Nice selection! The book sounds really interesting. I take it that Andrew has some kind of split personality?...

Here's my WoW selection: Mind Games. It's the first time I'm doing this meme. :)

I think so but I'm not really sure! That's why this is so intriguing.

I always find cool books I've never heard of.
This sounds like it could be a series, though the cover says A novel.

Here's my WoW
