Waiting On Wednesday #134: ZEROES by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 

What I'm currently waiting for... 

by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti
Expected release date: September 29th, 2015
Published by Simon Pulse
Genre: Young Adult 
Format: Hardcover, eBook, Audiobook


Ethan, aka "Scam," has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn't just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn't consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts - like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. 

So now Ethan needs help. 

And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him - his former group of friends, the self-named "zeros" who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. 

Brought back together by Scam's latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action.

What I'm waiting for ZEROES...

First of all... "double-edged abilities"!
I am getting a strong X-Men kinda vibe here!!!

Secondly... I feel like I'm already invested into the story!
Why are Scam's former friends so angry with him???

Lastly... Action! Adventure! Drama!
Yes to all!!!

What are you waiting for this week???
