Waiting on Wednesday (24)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

This week my pick is...

All These Lives by Sarah Wylie!

Sixteen-year-old Dani is convinced she has nine lives. As a child she twice walked away from situations where she should have died. But Dani’s twin, Jena, isn’t so lucky. She has cancer and might not even be able to keep her one life. Dani’s father is in denial. Her mother is trying to hold it together and prove everything’s normal. And Jena is wasting away. To cope, Dani sets out to rid herself of all her extra lives. Maybe they’ll be released into the universe and someone who wants to live more than she does will get one. Someone like Jena. But just when Dani finds herself at the breaking point, she’s faced with a startling realization. Maybe she doesn’t have nine lives after all. Maybe she really only ever had one. (summary from Goodreads)

Oh, yes, definitely a tearjerker...and I do adore those! This sounds like one that will surely pack a whollop and stay with me long after I finish it!

Sarah Wylie's All These Lives is expected to be published 5 June 2012.

Are you waiting on anything exciting this week?
