"Waiting On" Wednesday - #2

"Waiting On" Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I have decided to join the cool kids who are a part of this weekly event :)

For this week, I am eagerly anticipating -

Fall 2012


"A boy everyone calls “Butter” is about to make Scottsdale High history. He’s going to eat himself to death live on the Internet – and everyone will watch. 

He announces his deadly plan to an army of peers and expects pity, insults or even indifference. Instead, he finds morbid encouragement. When that encouragement tips the scales into popularity, Butter has a reason to live. But if he doesn’t go through with his plan, he’ll lose everything."



When I first read about this book, I was 100% sure I was NOT going to read it. A boy who is going to EAT HIMSELF TO DEATH? And he finds ENCOURAGEMENT? That is now exactly what has changed my mind! I, now, can absolutely NOT WAIT for this book to be released!


What about you guys? Thoughts? :)

  1. This sounds way to morbid for me (I don't read much in contemporary) but hope you enjoy.
