Waiting on Wednesday #12: Butter




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

 My pick for this week is:


Butter
A lonely obese boy everyone calls "Butter" is about to make history. He is going to eat himself to death—live on the Internet—and everyone is invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his classmates, Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer indifference. What he gets are morbid cheerleaders rallying around his deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a lot like popularity. And that feels good. But what happens when Butter reaches his suicide deadline? Can he live with the fallout if he doesn’t go through with his plans? With a deft hand, E.J. Lange allows readers to identify with both the bullies and the bullied in this all-consuming look at one teen’s battle with himself.

 The premise of this book sounds rather disturbing, but it also sounds very interesting.  I can't wait to read it once it is released on September 18th.



What are you Waiting On this Wednesday?

  4. I'm like Sarah, I can't decide if I'm brave enough to read it. O.O It sounds sort of horrifying and good and scary all at once - what a great idea for a story though. By August I'll probably decide I absolutely have to have this. :)

    Terrific choice!
