Waiting On Wednesday (8)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Crash Into Me by Albert Borris

Owen, Frank, Audrey, and Jin-Ae have one thing in common: they all want to die. When they meet online after each attempts suicide and fails, the four teens make a deadly pact: they will escape together on a summer road trip to visit the sites of celebrity suicides...and at their final destination, they will all end their lives. As they drive cross-country, bonding over their dark impulses, sharing their deepest secrets and desires, living it up, hooking up, and becoming true friends, each must decide whether life is worth living--or if there's no turning back.

I guess stories on roadtrip aren't anything unfamiliar, but this book doesn't sound ordinary to me. It sounds extreme. I love it when author touches such issues as suicides. Moreover, Crash Into Me's plot is very original - group suicide of four people who unexpectedly met. One more reason I'm excited is that I spot a Korean name up there - I always want to try books that got Asian characters. I've asked for a review copy but so far no reply. Wish me luck!

Crash into a New Arrival shelf on July 7th, you'll find this : )
