This week I am waiting on Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld (9/23/14):
Description on Goodreads:
Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she's made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings… Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.
Why I’m Waiting:
Westerfeld is one of those authors I like to refer to as trump authors. All I need to see is his name on a book, and I will buy it. I will mostly likely enjoy it. And I will definitely want to own it. Mix that with a story of a young girl writing a YA novel, and well you have a recipe for awesome. And certainly a main character I can relate to. What an interesting concept for a book. Also, it’s about time he came out with another book!
