Waiting on Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is a daily meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It highlights what newly released books us bloggers are most excited to read.

Title: Smoke
Author: Ellen Hopkins
Synopsis (via Goodreads): Pattyn Von Stratten’s father is dead, and Pattyn is on the run. After far too many years of abuse at the hands of her father, and after the tragic loss of her beloved Ethan and their unborn child, Pattyn is desperate for peace. Only her sister Jackie knows what happened that night, but she is stuck at home with their mother, who clings to normalcy by allowing the truth to be covered up by their domineering community leaders. Her father might be finally gone, but without Pattyn, Jackie is desperately isolated. Alone and in disguise, Pattyn starts a new life, but is it even possible to rebuild a life when everything you’ve known has burned to ash and lies seem far safer than the truth?

My Thoughts: I'm pretty sure Burned was the first book I read by Ellen Hopkins. I loved it. I couldn't put it down. I didn't want it to end. Sure enough, there's going to be a sequel. One of my book wishes has been granted. (:

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I haven't heard of this one before, and I haven't heard of Burned either. Happy reading!
