Waiting on Wednesday #11

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

This week I'm waiting for.....

by Ellen Hopkins

To Be Released on September 11, 2012

TILT is the story of three teens inter-related through their parents' family relationships and friendships. As their parents pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the kids' worlds tilt, through love--good and bad:

Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year, and decides to keep the baby?

Shane turns sixteen that same summer, and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister's impending death. Can he accept Alex's love, knowing his life, too, will be shortened?

Harley is fourteen—a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be

Why I'm waiting:  
All I have to say is:  Ellen Hopkins = Awesomeness

What are you waiting for?

Excellent pick! Everyone always tells me how good Ellen's books are, but I never seem to get a chance to read one. Now I think I'll have to!

Everyone raves about Hopkins, but I don't think I'd enjoy the subject matter much. Too gritty and real for me. I like supernatural stuff the best. :P

Here’s my WoW post. Happy Wednesday! :D

This isn't something I would naturally gravitate to but the premise does sound interesting.

Wow, this sounds like I'll need a box of tissues next to me while reading it :) I don't mind these kind of books! Great pick!

I have not yet read a Ellen Hopkins book. I hear so many good things, and I look at her books all the time when I'm out shopping but I've yet to pick one up. Someday I will!
