Waiting On Wednesday #52: BETWEEN THE LIVES by Jessica Shirvington

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 
This is were 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 all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

Between the Lives
by Jessica Shirvington
Expected release date: May 2013
Published by: HarperCollins
Genre: Young Adult 


Above all else, though I try not to think about it, I know which life I prefer. And every night when I Cinderella myself from one life to the next a very small, but definite, piece of me dies. The hardest part is that nothing about my situation has ever changed. 
There is no loophole.

Until now, that is... 

For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she Shifts to her 'other' life - a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she's a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she's considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: 

the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other. 
With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments which bring her dangerously close to the life she's always wanted...
But just what - and who - is she really risking?

Why I'm waiting on BETWEEN THE LIVES...

It's Jessica Shirvington! I LOVE her Embrace Series (aka The Violet Eden Chapters) -
I would pick this up just because it's one of my favorite authors!

It sounds exhausting!
