Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Title: You Against Me
Author: Jenny Downham
Release Date: December 2, 2010
Publisher: David Fickling Books
Summary: If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's been accused of a terrible crime and you're the main witness, then you banish all doubt and defend him. Isn't that what families do? When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her at a party, his world of work and girls begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the crime, but says he didn't do it, her world of revision, exams and fitting in at a new school begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide. Brave and unflinching, this is a novel of extraordinary skillfulness and almost unbearable tension. It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it's a book about love - for one's family and for another.

  1. Great pick. I had this as WOW pick a couple of weeks ago. It looks really good although I will probably need tissues :)

  2. I'm hanging out for this one too. It's going to be good - I can feel it!


  3. Really really hope TBD gets it in stock! D:
