"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly awaiting.
This week I can't wait for Goth Girl Rising by Barry Lyga. Goth Girl Rising is the sequel to the Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl and it comes out pretty soon on October 19, 2009. I just went to Amazon and they are selling it already, so oh well it still comes out on 10/19 : ) Summary is from Amazon.
Goth Girl Rising
By: Barry Lyga
Time is a funny thing in the hospital. In the mental ward. You lose track of it easily. After six months in the Maryland Mental Health Unit, Kyra Sellers, a.k.a. Goth Girl, is going home. Unfortunately, she’s about to find out that while she was away, she lost track of more than time. Things seem normal at first. Roger’s his typical, pain-in-the-ass fatherly self. Jecca and Simone and the rest of the goth crowd still do their thing. And Kyra is back in black, feeling good, and ready to make up with the only person who’s ever appreciated her for who she really is. But then she sees him. Fanboy. Transcended from everything he was into someone she barely recognizes. And the anger and memories come rushing back. Fanboy. The Spermling. Miss Powell. Roger. Her mother. There’s so much to do to people when you’re angry. Kyra’s about to get very busy.
