Waiting on Wednesday: Premeditated

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Premeditated
Author: Josin McQuein (Twitter)
Publisher: Delacorte BYR
Publish Date: October 8, 2013
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Pages: 336

A week ago, Dinah’s cousin Claire cut her wrists. Five days ago, Dinah found Claire’s diary and discovered why. Three days ago, Dinah stopped crying and came up with a plan.

Two days ago, she ditched her piercings and bleached the black dye from her hair. Yesterday, knee socks and uniform plaid became a predator’s camouflage. Today, she’ll find the boy who broke Claire. By tomorrow, he’ll wish he were dead.
I'm sorry, but there is something that is just so utterly fascinating about the concept of revenge. Especially righteous revenge, if you know what I mean. The idea that a girl would go to such great lengths to make someone pay for their sins against someone they hold dear isn't a new concept, but this sounds like a fresh, dark and slightly off-kilter tale, which we all know is right up my alley. I think Premeditated sounds like a great read - so long as it sticks to its guns and actually remains darker and realistic throughout. It doesn't hurt that that cover would look extra pretty on my shelf either. Jussayin'. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
