Waiting on Wednesday - Dead End

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

 


Dead End
by Jason Myers
Published by: Simon Pulse
Date: June 14, 2011








  

Dru and Gina are young, in love, and can’t wait to get out of Marshall, Nebraska, a town where bloodline means everything and whoever has the money makes the rules. But all their dreams are shattered when Gina has a monstrous run-in with the son of the richest man in Marshall—an incident that leaves her broken, battered, and violated. 

Driven by rage, Dru and Gina take matters into their own hands, and quickly find themselves in over their heads. Without any other options, Dru and Gina are on the run. But there’s more chasing them than they think, and love might not be enough to save them. (fromGoodreads)

I've read Jason Myers's other books Exit Here and The Mission.  They are very different from many of the books that I read - the tone and the language. They are raw and explosive. I'm looking forward to what Jason writes next.

  1. I haven't read any YA books with rape in them and I have to be honest, this one makes me nervous. I think it could be a kind of a hit or a miss type of a thing. I'm looking forward to what your review for it in the way future.
