Waiting on Wednesday


Between by Jessica Warman
Release Date: September 2011


Elizabeth Valchar --- pretty, popular and rich --- wakes up the morning after her 18th birthday on the yacht where she’d been celebrating with her closest friends. A persistent thumping noise has roused her. When she goes to investigate, she finds her own drowned body is hitting the side of the boat. Liz is dead. She has no memory of what happened to her, and can only observe in horror the fallout of her death.

She’s also soon joined by Alex Berg, a quiet boy from her high school who was killed by a hit-and-run driver. The two keep each other company, floating in and out of memories and trying to piece together the details of what happened to each of them.

In her regular life, Liz was a runner. It wasn’t abnormal for her to run 8-10 miles per day. But as memories from closer to her death begin to surface, Liz finds that she’d been running much more than normal, and that she’d all but stopped eating. Liz’s mother, who died when Liz was nine, had battled with anorexia as well, and those around her worried that Liz was following in her mother’s footsteps. But something more sinister was consuming Liz from the inside out..

My Thoughts: How creeptastic and beautiful is that cover? I am always down for a dead main character who's trying to figure out what happened. This one seems like it will touch on some serious issues too.

This is the first I'm ever hearing about this one but it sounds really good. And that cover is beyond creeptastic, yet gorgeous at the same time. *Runs to add it to my wishlist*

Nice pick! I've been watching this one, though truth to be told, I'm starting to get a bit tired of these between life-and-death stories... hopefully Between turns out to be unique and unforgettable! :)
