Waiting On Wednesday: Send

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

This week's "Waiting On" Wednesday selection is:

To keep his secrets, all he has to do is listen to the voice in his head and just walk away...

On his first day at his new high school, Dan stops a bully from beating up a kid half his size. He didn't want to get involved. All he wants out of his senior year is to fly under the radar. But Dan knows what it's like to be terrorized by a bully-he used to be one. Now the whole school thinks he's some kind of hero, except Julie Murphy, the prettiest girl on campus. She looks at him like she knows he has a secret. Like she knows his name isn't really Daniel.

I have to thank Teen Librarian's Toolbox for bringing this upcoming book to light.  To take a term from Kate at Ex Libris, I believe Send is a trigger book, one that readers should be on the lookout on the shelves come August.  After reading books like Dear Bully, Rival, and The List, I'm so ready for another book regarding one of the big issues in today's schools: bullying.  I'm eager to hear "Daniel's" story. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? ^_^
