Waiting on Wednesday (11)

October 23, 2013 waiting on wednesday 4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly waiting to read.

This Week:

Save the Enemy by Arin Greenwood

Release Date: November 12, 2013
Publisher: Soho Teen

Everything has been downhill since Zoey Trask’s mother was murdered in a random mugging. Her younger brother, Ben, is on the autistic spectrum and needs constant supervision. It’s senior year, and she’s the new girl at a weird private school in Old Town Alexandria, VA, full of kids who seem too nice to be true—including a very cute boy named Pete. Aside from half-forgotten martial arts and survivalist skills that her widowed father insisted on teaching her (because that is excellent for her social life), Zoey has nothing to offer Pete or anyone else.

Then Dad is kidnapped. Zoey suddenly finds herself sole caretaker of a younger brother she barely understands. Worse, Ben seems to hold the key to their father’s disappearance in his Dream Diary, a bizarre journal of names and places Ben claims that their mother shares from beyond the grave. And as if Zoey doesn’t have enough on her plate, there’s Pete, who stubbornly refuses to leave her side.

Relying on the skills she never wanted to learn—Dad might have had his reasons after all—Zoey is plunged into a lethal battle to rescue her father, protect her brother, and determine the identity of her family’s true enemy.

Why I’m Waiting:
Everyone at this point knows how much I crave murder mystery thrillers. I absolutely love books like this and after stumbling across this one, I just knew I had to read it. You don’t see many books out there that include characters with autism. While this isn’t told from Ben’s point of view, I’m eager to see how he and his Dream Diary impact Zoey’s life. And quite frankly, how cool a concept is this? Zoey has her brother’s diary that doesn’t seem to make sense at all but could possibly hold the key to everything. This just sounds so interesting to me!

What are you waiting on this week? Link me 🙂

    I saw the description for this on Edelweiss, I think. Definitely sounds intriguing and I wondered too about those skills she was taught and why her dad wanted her to have them. Great pick! Thanks for stopping by my WOW!

    YA mysteries are my favorite, too (with contemporary romance–I’m such a sucker). I just love them. This sounds really interesting. Is their mother really talking to her brother from beyond the grave? Great pick!
