"Waiting on Wednesday" - Freefall


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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
 
Freefall
By Mindi Scott
Publication Date:  October 5th 2010 by Simon Pulse  


How do you come back from the point of no return?

Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend Isaac alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time where Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn’t wake up.

Convinced that his own actions led to his friend’s death, Seth is torn between turning his life around . . . or losing himself completely.

Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he's ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth will soon realize he isn’t the only one who needs saving . . .


First of all, I love the simplicity of the cover, yet it says so much!  Also, we are starting to see more and more YA with male protagonists.  I like that!  For so long, it's been about the girls, but boys have real issues that need to be broached in stories as well.  Can't wait for this one!

This sounds like a powerful, thought provoking book.

This one sounds really good. I'm enjoying the shift to more male protagonists in YA too.
