Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that highlights the future releases we're excited for.

My WoW pick this week is Boy's Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman published October 28th by Doubleday Children's Books. Malorie's Noughts and Crosses series is probably the very best YA series I've ever read, and this book sounds interesting as well, so it's a no-brainer for the top of my wish list...even if I failed to realise she had a new book coming out next month until earlier *FAIL*

"You're waiting for the postman - he's bringing your A level results. University, a career as a journalist - a glittering future lies ahead. But when the doorbell rings it's your old girlfriend; and she's carrying a baby. You're fine to look after it, for an hour or two, while she does some shopping. Then she doesn't come back and your future suddenly looks very different."

Oh, this one sounds frighteningly real...the kind of thing that comes out of left field and changes everything.

This sounds like some heady stuff... something I might want to hand off to some teenage boys I know for the cover alone! XD

Aww this sounds really different and fun! Like one of those OMGIcan'tbelivethisishappening moments. I think I need to branch out of my paranormal YA rut and check out some regular YA and this sounds like just the ticket!
