Waiting on Wednesday: Cracked by K.M. Walton

"Waiting on Wednesday" is weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases we're excited for.

With a heavy focus on the supernatural and dystopian genres in YA literature, good contemporary works often get overlooked. And Cracked by K.M. Walton sounds like it has the potential to be an excellent and gripping novel, so I can't wait to check it out!

Details: Expected to be published in January 2012 by Simon Pulse.

Description: Victor hates his life. He has no friends, gets beaten up at school, and his parents are always criticizing him. Tired of feeling miserable, Victor takes a bottle of his mother's sleeping pills—only to wake up in the hospital.

Bull is angry, and takes all of his rage out on Victor. That makes him feel better, at least a little. But it doesn't stop Bull's grandfather from getting drunk and hitting him. So Bull tries to defend himself with a loaded gun.

When Victor and Bull end up as roommates in the same psych ward, there's no way to escape each other or their problems. Which means things are going to get worse—much worse—before they get better…
