Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait to read:
Away We Go
Publication Date: February 2, 2016
With an innovative format that includes interstitial documents, such as flyers, postcards, and handwritten notes, Away We Go is a funny, honest look at first love and tragic heartbreak.
Westing is not your typical school. For starters, you have to have one very important quality in order to be admitted—you have to be dying. Every student at Westing has been diagnosed with PPV, or the Peter Pan Virus. No one is expected to live to graduation.
What do you do when you go to a school where no one has a future? Noah Falls, his girlfriend Alice, and his best friend Marty spend their time drinking, making out, and playing video games on awaywego.com. But when an older boy named Zach (who Noah may or may not be in love with) invites Noah and Marty to join his secret Polo Club, the lives of both boys change as they struggle to find meaning in their shortened existence.
(Summary from Goodreads)
First of all I like the inclusion of some of Peter Pan that is alluded to in the summary. I think this is just an intriguing idea, to stick all the kids with this virus in one place. It sounds like they get to do whatever they want, and this is less of a school and more of a cushy prison. I liked Emil Ostrovski's first book, The Paradox of Vertical Flight, so I think I'll enjoy this as well.
What book are you waiting for?
