"Waiting On" Wednesday (62)

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

Title: Revived 
Author: Cat Patrick 
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: May, 2012

As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.

A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger — and more sinister — than she ever imagined.
I haven't read anything but her but I love the creep, intriguing cover and the summary is awesome too!


Title:Never Enough 

Author: Denise Jaden 
Publisher: Simon Pulse 
Release Date: July 2012 
Loann’s always wanted to be popular and pretty like her sister, Claire. So when Claire’s ex-boyfriend starts flirting with her, Loann is willing to do whatever it takes to feel special…even if that means betraying her sister.

But as Loann slips inside Claire’s world, she discovers that everything is not as it seems. Claire’s quest for perfection is all-consuming, and comes at a dangerous price. As Claire increasingly withdraws from friends and family, Loann struggles to understand her and make amends. Can she heal their relationship—and her sister—before it’s too late?
I have Denise's first book but I haven't read it yet. When I heard about this one, I once again became interested in it! 
Title:The Treachery of Beautiful Things 
Author: Ruth Frances Long 
Publisher:  Penguin Group USA, Inc 
Release Date: August 16, 2012 
The trees swallowed her brother whole. And Jenny was there to see it. Years later, when she returns to the woods where Tom was taken to say good-bye at last, she finds herself lured into a world where stunning beauty masks the most treacherous of evils, and strange and dangerous creatures await—creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with allegiances that shift as much as his moods. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack’s help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say, and she’s faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice—and not just her own.
Oh, the cover! When I first saw it, I knew I had to check it out. AND it sounds really good!
Title:The Princesses of Iowa 
Author: M. Molly Backes  
Publisher: Candlewick Press 
Release Date: May 8, 2012 
This is supposed to be Paige's year at Willow Grove High, when the perfect clothes, perfect friends, and perfect boyfriend pay off in a coveted spot on the homecoming court. But that was before last spring's drunken crash, the one that got Paige exiled to Paris for the summer and sent fissures through the bedrock of her friendships. Now Paige is back in Iowa, but nothing seems the same, not even her two BFFs. Nikki, the one behind the wheel that night, is scary thin, being eaten away at by guilt. Lacey now walks with a limp — and a major chip on her shoulder. Even Paige's boyfriend, Jake, seems distant, more concerned with being there for poor, crippled Lacey than for Paige herself. The only bright spot is Paige's creative writing class, taught by an inspiring new teacher who encourages them to be true to themselves.But whoisPaige, exactly, away from her growing-apart friends, her small-town beau, and her goal to be homecoming royalty? In an arresting debut, M. Molly Backes takes a hard look at high school's rituals and revelations, probing surprising depths as she hits all the beats.
I'm a sucker for these kinds of books. It sounds so cliche said that she's been exiled to Paris (sounds horrible *exiled* but not all that bad *Paris) and you want to know what happened!
