Waiting on Wednesday August 26-The Hate List

August 26th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Mosey on over and see what other people are waiting for.


The Hate List by Jennifer Brown due out September 1 (although I just saw on Amazon it says available now!)

Description from Five months ago, Valerie Leftman’s boyfriend, Nick, opened fire on their school cafeteria. Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. A list of people and things she and Nick hated. The list he used to pick his targets.

Now, after a summer of seclusion, Val is forced to confront her guilt as she returns to school to complete her senior year. Haunted by the memory of the boyfriend she still loves and navigating rocky relationships with her family, former friends and the girl whose life she saved, Val must come to grips with the tragedy that took place and her role in it, in order to make amends and move on with her life.

    I’ve never heard of this before either, although it does sound good. A bit shallow but I really don’t like the cover though!
    Here is my WOW:
