Waiting on Wednesday: THE BODIES WE WEAR

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week my WoW is on THE BODIES WE WEAR by Jeyn Roberts. I will be the first to admit that the cover is what caught my attention but after that I was sold on this novel because of it's snyopsis. Revenge...is always a good reason to fuel one's hate fire and THE BODIES WE WEAR seems to host some serious hate fire. I saw bring it on, I am ready for it.

This is my WoW for this week, what is yours?

The Bodies We Wear, Book One
ISBN: 978-0385754125

Pitched as Kill Bill meets The Lovely Bones, The Bodies We Wear is the story of Faye, a girl hellbent on getting revenge against the men who stole her life and murdered the boy she loved. 

People say when you take Heam, the body momentarily dies and you catch a glimpse of Heaven.

I was only nine-years-old.

I saw something else.

I saw Hell.

Set in a world where a drug called Heam causes worldwide addiction and death, 17-year-old Faye is training so she can be strong enough to seek revenge. Eight years ago, Heam was forced on her and her best friend, Christian. She survived. Christian didn't.

But life never goes according to plan. A mysterious young man named Chael has shown up and suddenly her life has become a lot more complicated. He seems to know everything about her, including her terrible past. As she gets drawn into his world, she starts to realise that things aren't as black and white as she first thought. But too many secrets start tearing her world down. Trouble at school, with the police, and the people she thought might be her friends--even Gazer, her guardian, fears she's become too obsessed with destruction.

Love and death. Will Faye overcome her desires or will revenge destroy her?
