Waiting on Wednesday 9.5.12

September 5, 2012 Fun Stuff 6

 

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Title: Butter
Author: E.L. Lange
Release Date: September 18, 2012
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA

Summary: A lonely obese boy everyone calls “Butter” is about to make history. He is going to eat himself to death—live on the Internet—and everyone is invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his classmates, Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer indifference. What he gets are morbid cheerleaders rallying around his deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a lot like popularity. And that feels good. But what happens when Butter reaches his suicide deadline? Can he live with the fallout if he doesn’t go through with his plans?

With a deft hand, E.J. Lange allows readers to identify with both the bullies and the bullied in this all-consuming look at one teen’s battle with himself.

    How do you eat yourself to death?! This one sounds super interesting, but I’d probably wait to see what other people were saying before picking up a copy :)

    My WoW!
