It turns out that Gobi Zaksauskas is not the mousy teenager that she seems but rather an attractive, confident trained assassin. Instead of going to the prom, Perry finds himself on a wild ride through the streets of New York City as Gobi commandeers the Jaguar his father lent him for the prom in order to take out her targets. Perry learns a lot about himself – and ends up with some amazing material for his college application essays.

How to Save a Life

Expected publication: October 18th 2011
by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Jill MacSweeney just wants everything to go back to normal. But ever since her dad died, she's been isolating herself from her boyfriend, her best friends--everyone who wants to support her. You can't lose one family member and simply replace him with a new one, and when her mom decides to adopt a baby, that's exactly what it feels like she's trying to do. And that's decidedly not normal. With her world crumbling around her, can Jill come to embrace a new member of the family? 
Mandy Kalinowski knows what it's like to grow up unwanted--to be raised by a mother who never intended to have a child. So when Mandy becomes pregnant, she knows she wants a better life for her baby. But can giving up a child be as easy as it seems? And will she ever be able to find someone to care for her, too? 
Critically acclaimed author and National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr delivers a heart-wrenching story, told from dual perspectives, about what it means to be a family and the many roads we can take to become one.
Au Revoir Crazy European Chick is a GREAT title! And after reading the summary I have to say that the cover is very fitting and very good. The Story of Us, I love this cover!! It's so pretty! ^^ Destined is another Greek story retelling, hopefully it will be a good retelling, while Forbidden is about Angels and forbidden existence. Also Forbidden has an academy, and I love books with Academies! Plus, such a pretty cover. Every time I see the cover of How To Save a Life I instantly think of the song by The Fray. I read one book by Sara Zarr before, Once Was Lost and was surprised to find that I liked it, so I plan to read How to Save a Life. Sara Zarr has proven herself to be a fantastic author, so I'm sure she won't disappoint!

So what about you? What are you waiting for this wonderful Wednesday? Did you add these to your mailing list?
