Waiting on Wednesday: Spontaneous - Aaron Starmer

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

This week I'm waiting on Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer!

Release Date: August 23, 2016
Publisher: Dutton Books
Waited on by: Amrutha

“Katelyn Ogden was a lot of things, but she wasn’t particularly explosive, in any sense of the word.”

 Mara Carlyle’s senior year at Covington High in suburban New Jersey is going on as normally as could be expected, until the day—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc. Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last senior to spontaneously combust without warning or explanation. The body count grows and the search is on for a reason—Terrorism! Drugs! Homosexuality! Government conspiracy!—while the seniors continue to pop like balloons.

Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it with tell-it-like-it-is insight as she tries to make it to graduation in one piece through an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard the President of the United States use over Skype.

I'm so hyped about this? This book won the Most Unique Premise of August 2016 award -- I'm sure because the plot sounds absolutely wild. This book hasn't even been released yet and there are already rumors that this will get made into a movie. I'm always ready to read about girls from suburban New Jersey because I am one, but I'm even more ready to read about people who blow up unexpectedly. Can't wait for this one!
