Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick is Blank Confession by Pete Hautman, set to come out November 16 from Simon & Schuster.
Summary: Shayne Blank is the new kid in town--but that doesn't stop him from getting into a lot of trouble very quickly. The other kids don't understand him. He's not afraid of anything. He seems too smart. And his background doesn't add up. But when he walks into the police department to confess to a murder, it quickly becomes apparent that nothing is as it seems. There's more to Shayne--and his story--than meets the eye. As the details begin to fill in, the only thing that becomes clear is that nothing about Shayne's story is clear at all.
My Thoughts: I think Shayne has a lot of potential to be a great MC, and I love the way he's presented in the premise. A mix of a stereotype and someone unique, I already like the kid. I also really love murder mysteries, especially the way this one is pitched with Shayne going to confess seemingly on his own. I definitely am interested to see what the truth is- and how things paly out for Shayne.
