Waiting on Wednesday (136)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti (9/29/15):

Description on Goodreads:
Ethan, aka "Scam", has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn't just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn't consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts - like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. So now Ethan needs help. And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him - his former group of friends, the self-named "zeros" who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. Brought back together by Scam's latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action.
Why I’m Waiting:
Honestly, mostly, I’m waiting because it’s Scott Westerfeld. His last book, Afterworlds, was my favorite book of 2014. Also, I have loved all of his books. I’m interested to see how his collaboration with other authors will go. Also, the premise for the book sounds super good and super suspenseful. I love how Westerfeld writes friendships so I’m excited to read about why Scam’s friends are all so angry with him.
What are you waiting on this week?
