Waiting On Wednesday: Wilder by Andrew Simonet

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where we highlight some of the upcoming books we can't wait to read!

Emily's Waiting on:

Title: Wilder 
Author: Andrew Simonet
Genre: YA Contemporary
Publisher: Farrar, Straus, & Giroux  
Publication Date: Nov. 13th,2018 

Summary: I met Melissa in the rubber room, a.k.a. in-school suspension. And that’s not her real name.She had secrets, I had enemies.“People are either useful or dangerous,” she said. “One or the other.”“Which one am I?” I said.“You’re both.”Meili was right. (That’s her real name.)You can solve a lot of problems if you don’t mind getting hurt.
Jason Wilder is in permanent in-school suspension for fighting. Meili Wen gets there by breaking a girl’s finger. Jason and Meili don’t just connect; they collide. Two people who would never cross paths―outsiders from radically different backgrounds―they form an exhiliarating, unpredictable bond. When circumstances push, they push back. There’s no plan. And there’s no stopping.
"I am so crap. How can you stand being with me? Don’t answer that or I will crash this thing with both of us on it, swear to god, are you ready?”Yes. No. Didn’t matter.I reached both arms around Meili’s waist as we zoomed down the hill.

This is another ARC I received from BooxExpo this year and also one I wasn't expecting to get. After reading the summary, I was glad I picked it up. I'm into all things YA contemporary and this is totally one. I love unexpected bonds and stories of two strangers joining forces. Be on the lookout for an ARC review and be sure to share what you're waiting on! 

What are you waiting on this week? Leave your links so we can stop back!

  1. This book is on my TBR too. I love when circumstances bring very different people together and produce unlikely friendships. The characters also sound really interesting.
