Book Trailer Friday #3: AFTERWORLDS by Scott Westerfeld (YA)

I have a new addiction: BOOK TRAILERS!!!
I'm an "old lady" who doesn't do much late Friday nights except read, 
watch some Big Bang Theory and maybe bake a cookie or two... 
until I discovered that there are a lot of book trailers out there! 
And more and more are being made and released, and I cannot help myself! 
I'm going to start sharing a few of my old and new favorite book trailers :) 

by Scott Westerfeld
Expected release date: September 23rd, 2014
Published by: Simon Pulse
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Format: Hardcover, eBook


Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. 
Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she's made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings… 

Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. 
But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. 
And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.

AFTERWORLDS' book trailer


Ooo, intriguing... intense!

So, it seems that "Darcy writes the story" and "Lizzie lives the story that Darcy is writing'...
I'm getting the impression that Lizzie's world is coming into or interfering with Darcy's. Maybe even, Darcy having a hard time with differentiating what's real and not...???
SO, many questions!

I cannot read this book!
I have never read a Scott Westerfeld book, and I think this is the perfect one to start with!

What do you think??? 

Also, got any favorite book trailers to share :)
