Carmen Rodrigues
Coming September 4th, 2012

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 34 clues she left behind. 34 strips of paper hidden in a box beneath her bed. 34 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 begin to confront the darkest truths about themselves, they will also find out what Ellie herself had been hiding all along...


c.j.'s thoughts
This is barely a "waiting" since it literally just came out today, but since I'm still waiting for it, I've decided that it counts.  I read 13 Reasons Why a long time ago--well, last summer--and it was the first book I ever reviewed.  It was fantastic.  Not only does this book have a very similar premise, but...actually, I didn't really have anything clever to say.  The premise is a bit copycat, but I don't care, because it sounds like a fantastically gritty read.  From what I've heard in reviews, it's also very powerful in its own right and has some great characters.  Just ordered it in a fit of whimsy.  So look forward to the review!
