Waiting on Wednesday ~ The Kidney Hypothetical: Or How to Ruin Your Life in Seven Days
Again a bit late, too many things going on at the moment, I will promise next week I will post this one at a more normal time. This week we got a book with an extremely long title, which reminds me of Light Novels (Japanese). The last few years we have gotten several Light Novels with hilariously long titles. 🙂
So here we go. This week’s most anticipated book is:
Lisa Yee gives us her most fascinating flawed genius since Millicent Min.
Higgs Boson Bing has seven days left before his perfect high school career is completed. Then it’s on to Harvard to fulfill the fantasy portrait of success that he and his parents have cultivated for the past four years. Four years of academic achievement. Four years of debate championships. Two years of dating the most popular girl in school. It was, literally, everything his parents could have wanted. Everything they wanted for Higgs’s older brother Jeffrey, in fact.
But something’s not right. And when Higgs’s girlfriend presents him with a seemingly innocent hypothetical question about whether or not he’d give her a kidney . . . the exposed fault lines reach straight down to the foundations of his life. . . .
So why do I really want to read this book?
Well the first reason would be the hilariously long title. It just makes me curious about a book. And second the blurb sounds awesome. What would you do when someone asks you such a question? I can’t wait to see what our main character will do, what he will discover and what he will answer in the end. And last reason, the cover. I am still a cover lover and I see a very lovely cover. I love the bright blue colours with the black/red/pink text and black and white characters.
