Let’s celebrate Wednesday by talking about an upcoming new release! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine and I love participating in it every week!
This week’s spotlight book is The Living by Matt de la Pena.
Shy took the summer job to make some money. In a few months on a luxury cruise liner, he’ll rake in the tips and be able to help his mom and sister out with the bills. And how bad can it be? Bikinis, free food, maybe even a girl or two—every cruise has different passengers, after all.
But everything changes when the Big One hits. Shy’s only weeks out at sea when an earthquake more massive than ever before recorded hits California, and his life is forever changed. The earthquake is only the first disaster. Suddenly it’s a fight to survive for those left living.
Doesn’t this sound like a cool survival, adventure story?! What an intriguing premise; summer dreams turn into a fight for your life against the forces of nature?! Very exciting!
The Living will be released on November 12, which is actually the day before my birthday!
