Waiting on Wednesday

New WoW

This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books.

This week’s pick is:

challenger deep

Challenger Deep

Release date: April 21st 2015

From Goodreads: Caden Bosch is on a ship that’s headed for the deepest point on Earth: Challenger Deep, the southern part of the Marianas Trench.
Caden Bosch is a brilliant high school student whose friends are starting to notice his odd behavior.
Caden Bosch is designated the ship’s artist in residence, to document the journey with images.
Caden Bosch pretends to join the school track team but spends his days walking for miles, absorbed by the thoughts in his head.
Caden Bosch is split between his allegiance to the captain and the allure of mutiny.
Caden Bosch is torn.
A captivating and powerful novel that lingers long beyond the last page, Challenger Deep is a heartfelt tour de force by one of today’s most admired writers for teens.

Why I’m excited: It’s Neal Shusterman. I fell in love with his writing and his characters in Unwind and I have every confidence this book will handle the issue of mental illness sensitively. Just the blurb makes me think this will be a hard and insightful read.

  3. I can’t believe I haven’t read a Neil Shusterman book yet, but I’m going to try this one. I’m also happy that it will look into mental illness.
