Waiting on Wednesday: Wickedpedia

Wednesday, November 6, 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: Wickedpedia
Publisher: Scholastic
Publish Date: June 24, 2014
Genre: YA, Horror
Pages: 224

It's the return of Point Horror for the Internet generation! Don't open the door. Don't answer your phone. And whatever you do, DON'T turn on your computer.

Cole and Greg love playing practical jokes through Wikipedia. They edit key articles and watch their classmates crash and burn giving oral reports on historical figures like Genghis Khan, the first female astronaut on Jupiter. So after the star soccer player steals Cole's girlfriend, the boys take their revenge by creating a Wikipedia page for him, an entry full of outlandish information including details about his bizarre death on the soccer field.

It's all in good fun, until the soccer player is killed in a freak accident...just as Cole and Greg predicted. The uneasy boys vow to leave Wikipedia alone but someone continues to edit articles about classmates dying in gruesome ways...and those entries start to come true as well. To his horror, Cole soon discovers that someone has created a Wikipedia page for him, and included a date of death. He has one week to figure out who's behind the murders, or else he's set to meet a pretty grisly end.
Holy horror. I always pretend I'm a hero and I can stomach brutality and horror, but let's be honest. I'm not. There's something about the genre though that keeps me on my toes. Wickedpedia seems like it is going to embody its title…full of wicked, terrible, horrifying delights. I'll probably be too scared to turn on my computer for a week or ten, but you know, I just can't resist. It's like some sort of twisted sadistic pleasure. I can't help it, and I certainly can't wait for this book (and this sick cover). What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
