Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill on her blog 🙂
This week I choose a book, which was published the day before, but I just stumbled across it during the last week, so I wanted to share it with you. It sounds really cool and I love the cover and the whole idea of the story.
Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback, Brandon Fitzsimmons, dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody.
Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut. It’s written all over the „slut stall“ in the girls‘ bathroom: „Alice had sex in exchange for math test answers“ and „Alice got an abortion last semester.“ After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they „know“ about Alice – and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there’s only one person to ask: Alice herself.
You got to admit, that it sounds very exciting and promising. Although I am not quite sure, which genre it is, but what does it matter in the end? A good book stays a good book, no matter which genre it is. 🙂
What do you think about this book? Which genres do you prefer?
I am looking forward to hearing from you 🙂
