Waiting on Wednesday #18: 34 Pieces of You

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

 My pick for this week is:

 34 Pieces of You
A dark and moving novel--reminiscent of "Thirteen Reasons Why--"about the mystery surrounding a teenage girl's fatal overdose.There was something about Ellie...Something dangerous. Charismatic. Broken. Jake looked out for her. Sarah followed her lead. And Jess kept her distance--and kept watch.

Now Ellie's dead, and Jake, Sarah, and Jess are left to pick up the pieces. All they have are thirty-four clues she left behind. Thirty-four strips of paper hidden in a box beneath her bed. Thirty-four secrets of a brief and painful life.

Jake, Sarah, and Jess all feel responsible for what happened to Ellie, and all three have secrets of their own. As they confront the past, they will discover not only the darkest truths about themselves, but also what Ellie herself had been hiding all along....

This book sounds very interesting.  I enjoy mysteries, and it sounds like it will have some kind of mystery.  Also, it is told in multiple POV (two females and a male), and I enjoy multiple POV usually.  I have been looking for more male POV books to read recently, and one of the narrators is male.  I look forward to reading this once it's released on September 4th and discovering what secrets Ellie was hiding.

  14. I agree with Traci, the first time I saw this I thought of Thirteen Reasons Why. That means this book has a lot to live up to, but I'm excited to read it.

  15. This looks good. I wonder if the author and Jay Asher had similar ideas at the same time, or if this author read Thirteen Reasons Why...? Whatever the case, I also enjoy male POVs and will have to check this one out. Secrets intrigue me!
