Waiting On Wednesday (34)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

The S-Word by Chelsea Pitcher

First it was SLUT scribbled all over Lizzie Hart’s locker.

But one week after Lizzie kills herself, SUICIDE SLUT replaces it—in Lizzie's looping scrawl.


Lizzie’s reputation is destroyed when she's caught in bed with her best friend’s boyfriend on prom night. With the whole school turned against her, and Angie not speaking to her, Lizzie takes her own life. But someone isn’t letting her go quietly. As graffiti and photocopies of Lizzie’s diary plaster the school, Angie begins a relentless investigation into who, exactly, made Lizzie feel she didn’t deserve to keep living. And while she claims she simply wants to punish Lizzie’s tormentors, Angie's own anguish over abandoning her best friend will drive her deep into the dark, twisted side of Verity High—and she might not be able to pull herself back out.

Debut author Chelsea Pitcher daringly depicts the harsh reality of modern high schools, where one bad decision can ruin a reputation, and one cruel word can ruin a life. Angie’s quest for the truth behind Lizzie’s suicide is addictive and thrilling, and her razor-sharp wit and fierce sleuthing skills makes her impossible not to root for—even when it becomes clear that both avenging Lizzie and avoiding self-destruction might not be possible.


HOLY MOLY does this one look good. I mean, not only is it a contemp but it seems to be a Veronica Mars-esque drama mystery at that! And it also looks like it it'll delve deeper into issues like bullying, slutshaming, suicide, etc. I seriously cannot wait for 2013, the anticipation is, like, physically hurting me at this point!

The S-Word will be released May 7, 2013 by Gallery Books, a S&S imprint.

What are YOU waiting on?
