Waiting on Wednesday: Release by Patrick Ness

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Release by Patrick Ness!

May the Force be with you all. I bring you a new Patrick Ness release (I originally thought "release" was just a temporary title instead of the actual one... oh my)

Publication date: May 4th, 2017
Publisher: Walker Books

Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume's Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It's a big day. Things go wrong. It's intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches...

Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It's a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won't come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.

I admit I have no idea what this book is about... I am not familiar with Mrs Dalloway and Forever either. I know this is a contemporary book though which is not my cup of tea but who knows, maybe I get surprised by the reviews.

Are you excited about Release?
