My Wishlist



This is a weekly post on the books I'm craving but a) I haven't gotten around to getting them yet and b) they've not been released yet. It's hosted by Book Chick City.

It's all about YA for me this week!

I am a sucker for a good werewolf story and this seems to be just that! Hoping it's a fantastic read.
13 to LifeRelease Date: June, 2010
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
YA/Fantasy
Paperback: 320 pages

I lurve the cover and the synopsis has really got me keen. Cheers Melissa for bringing this to my attention.
From Goodreads: 
A note from the author: 
It's easy to forget that we spend our early teens afraid. We're afraid of fitting in, standing out, or being ignored. We worry that we'll never get a date, never get into college, and never amount to anything. Just like everyone predicts.

It's also easy to discount these fears. Looking back, it seems impossible that we would have stayed awake all night worrying about what someone else thought of our clothes or that we ever doubted our abilities, our potential. But that's only because we know how the story ends.

I wanted to write a book that started with these fears as givens, bottling them in tight and capping them off with that artificial indifference genetically required of all teens. Kyle Chase is not a bad kid. He's not a good kid, either. He's a typical kid. He's any kid. And, at one point in your life, he was you.



YouRelease Date: Sept, 2010
