This week I am waiting on...
Title: This Is Where the World Ends
Author: Amy Zhang
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Synopsis via Goodreads:
The heart-wrenching new novel about best friends on a collision course with the real world, from the author of Falling into Place.
Janie and Micah, Micah and Janie. That’s how it’s been ever since elementary school, when Janie Vivian moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not. Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie loves art. It’s the perfect friendship, as long as no one finds out about it.
But when Janie is date-raped by the most popular guy in school—a guy she’s had a crush on for years—she finds herself ostracized by all the people she thought were her friends. Now only Micah seems to believe she’s telling the truth. But when even Micah expresses doubt about whether or not she was “asking for it,” it leads to disastrous consequences, and Janie Vivian goes missing.
Using a nonlinear writing style and dual narrators, Amy Zhang’s astonishing second novel masterfully reveals the circumstances surrounding Janie’s disappearance.
COMING MARCH 22nd 2016
I was a huge fan of Amy Zhang's debut Falling Into Place. I met Amy back in 2014 and was able to get my copy of Falling Into Place signed. She talked about how she was in the middle of writing her next book but could not give any details. I have wanted this book since that very moment. After over a year of waiting I am ready to finally get my hands on it!
