Waiting on Wednesday (25)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".

Exposed by Kimberley Marcus
Release date: February 22nd 2011 
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)

In the dim light of the darkroom, I'm alone, but not for long.
As white turns to gray, Kate is with me.
The background of the dance studio blurred, so the focus is all on her
legs extended in a perfect soaring split.
The straight line to my squiggle,
my forever-best friend.


Sixteen-year-old Liz Grayson is photogirl—sharp, focused and ready to take the world by storm with her camera. But Liz's entire life is called into question when her brother is accused of a crime—and the accuser is Liz's own best friend. As the aftershocks from that accusation rip through Liz's world, everything she thought she knew about photography, family, friendship and herself, shifts out of focus. And for the first time in her life, Liz finds herself unable to trust her own point of view. Told in stunning, searingly raw free verse,  Exposed is Kimberly Marcus's gut-wrenching, riveting debut and will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson and Virginia Euwer Wolff. 

Three things: I'm definitely intrigued by the summary! It's written in verse, which I've been a big fan of lately. And I'm definitely a fan of Laurie Halse Anderson. I have a feeling I'm really going to enjoy this one :D

Loving those verse-style novels lately. They're so poetic; guess I'll be looking forward to this one too!

Cool pick, Sara! I haven't read many books in verse, but I have a feeling I might like it. And a book about photography is always nice! I'll be looking for this one.
