Waiting on Wednesday: The Sin-Eater's Confession

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

Cover of The Sin-Eater's Confession by Ilsa J. Bick
The Sin-Eater's Confession by Ilsa J. Bick
Publisher: Carolrhoda Books
Genre: Contemporary, YA
Publication Date: 1 March, 2013
People in Merit, Wisconsin, always said Jimmy was . . . you know. But people said all sorts of stupid stuff. Nobody really knew anything. Nobody really knew Jimmy. 

I guess you could say I knew Jimmy as well as anyone (which was not very well). I knew what scared him. And I knew he had dreams—even if I didn't understand them. Even if he nearly ruined my life to pursue them.

Jimmy's dead now, and I definitely know that better than anyone. I know about blood and bone and how bodies decompose. I know about shadows and stones and hatchets. I know what a last cry for help sounds like. I know what blood looks like on my own hands. 

What I don't know is if I can trust my own eyes. I don't know who threw the stone. Who swung the hatchet? Who are the shadows? What do the living owe the dead?

I stumbled across this book by chance, after clicking on the 'wrong' cover on Netgalley last week. I happened to read the description, and was stopped in my tracks, thinking, "Whoa--what on Earth happens in this book?" It sounds like a psychologically rough story, which are sometimes my favorites. I like to get into people's minds. So now I'm very intrigued, and excited for it to be released.

What are you waiting on?
