Waiting on Wednesday - Please Ignore Vera Dietz

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Please Ignore Vera Dietz
by A.S. King

release date:
October 12th 2010 by Knopf BFYR

Description from authors site:

---Is it okay to hate a dead kid?
---Even if I loved him once?
---Even if he was my best friend?
---Is it okay to hate him for being dead?

Vera's spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she's kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.

So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, or even the police. But will she emerge and clear his name? Does she even want to?

An edgy, gripping story, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.

My Thoughts: I really liked A.S. King's first book, Dust of 100 Dogs, so I am really looking forward to reading this one!
She's an incredible storyteller, and this plot definitely sounds intriguing!

  2. I LOVED The Dust of 100 Dogs (so much that "loved" demands capital letters)! Thanks so much for posting this; I didn't know King was releasing another book. Thanks for visiting my blog as well :)
