Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This Is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang
March 22nd 2016 by Greenwillow Books


The heart-wrenching new novel about best friends on a collision course with the real world, from the author of Falling into Place.

Janie and Micah, Micah and Janie. That’s how it’s been ever since elementary school, when Janie Vivian moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not. Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie loves art. It’s the perfect friendship, as long as no one finds out about it.

But when Janie is date-raped by the most popular guy in school—a guy she’s had a crush on for years—she finds herself ostracized by all the people she thought were her friends. Now only Micah seems to believe she’s telling the truth. But when even Micah expresses doubt about whether or not she was “asking for it,” it leads to disastrous consequences, and Janie Vivian goes missing.

Using a nonlinear writing style and dual narrators, Amy Zhang’s astonishing second novel masterfully reveals the circumstances surrounding Janie’s disappearance.

I really enjoyed Amy Zhang’s other novel, Falling into Place so I’m pretty excited to read her new one coming in 2016. Oh and I’m SO in love with the cover!

    • Falling Into Place is one of my favorites and that says a lot since I'm usually not a big fan of YA contemporary. It has to be really good for me to like it. But anyway glad you know about this new one! 😀
