Waiting on Wednesday: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Title: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Pub Date: September 27, 2011

Mara Dyer doesn't believe life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.                                                                                                                                    
She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is.     

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. She's wrong.--Goodreads

Mostly, I dig the title. I am a sucker for titles full of foreshadowy drama. I actually saw the title to this book first. And then I looked it up on Goodreads and saw the STATEMENT COVER and read the description and just thought "Yes, Yes, YES!!!!"

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Hmmmm?
