Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that you're eagerly anticipating.
Three teens, three stories—all interconnected through their parents’ family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the lives of the teens begin to tilt…. Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year—and decides to keep the baby? Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister’s impending death. Can he accept Alex’s love, knowing that his life, too, will be shortened? Harley is fourteen—a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be. Love, in all its forms, has crucial consequences in this standalone novel.
Okay guys, you honestly do not understand how EXCITED I really am for this book. I read Triangles, which is one of Ellen's adult reads, and it was a 3-4 star read for me. It was different reading from the adults in her books instead of the teenagers. Anyways, I loved all three of the characters that this story is based on and I'm so excited to see what was going on with them whenever the events of Triangles was happening.
Tilt is expected to be published on September 11th, 2012 by Margaret K. McElderry Books.
