Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it was created for bloggers to share with each other the books they are impatiently “waiting on.” This week I’ve found a book that you won’t have to wait long for. It’s coming out next week!
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan comes out July 3, 2012 from Harper Teen. Team Human looks like a parody of the Twilight books, but I believe it’s got a lot more going for it. Don’t you love the title? Here’s the description from Goodreads:
Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires, doesn’t mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally. They stay in their part of town; she says in hers. Until the day a vampire shows up at her high school. Worse yet, her best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him. It’s up to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity
On top of trying to help Cathy (whether she wants it or not), Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe. Combine all this with a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching.
Acclaimed authors Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan team up to create a witty and poignant story of cool vampires, warm friendships, and the changes that test the bonds of love.
I’m dying to read this. It’s one of those books that has received reviews all over the map, so I’m curious to learn the truth. And I promise to report back!
What are you waiting on?
