WAITING ON WEDNESDAY


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...
Social Suicide (Deadly Cool, #2)Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.

Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper's brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went...a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH's resident body finder, I'm stuck trying to prove that Sydney's death wasn't suicide.

I'm starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos... ~From GoodReads

 I absolutely adored Deadly Cool. So when I found out Gemma Halliday had written another book starring the funny, amazing Hartley Featherstone, I was bouncing with excitement. I actually have an ARC of Social Suicide, but am waiting until closer to release to read it. I don't know how long I can hold out!

Paperback, 272 pages
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by HarperTeen

  9. I haven't read Deadly Cool yet but I've keeps getting on my radar time and time again. If it was good enough to have the 2nd on your WOW, it must have been pretty good. I'll have to get the first one for sure now.
