Waiting on Wednesday #24: Survive by Alex Morel

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

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick  is:

Survive

Hardcover, 272 pages
Expected publication: August 2nd 2012 by Razorbill

Description from Goodreads:

Jane runs away from Life House, a facility for kids with mental health disorders and addictions. She boards a plane to Montclair, New Jersey, though her destination does not matter—she doesn’t plan to be alive when the plane lands. Jane has planned the perfect suicide: she’ll fall asleep on the plane and never wake up. As she’s reaching for her pills in the cabin’s bathroom, the plane hits turbulence. Another jolt, and the engine’s down. The plane crashes into the mountains of Montana, and Jane and a boy named Paul are the only two survivors.
What starts out as a death mission quickly becomes a fight for life.

The cover is fantastic, but it was ultimately the description that pulled me in for this one. It’ll be really interesting to see how Jane goes from wanting to end her life to wanting to stay alive.

Side note: I didn’t mean to not post anything yesterday. I’ve been battling some sort of cold for the past few weeks – I didn’t even touch a book yesterday. But I’m back to posting today! 🙂
