Waiting on Wednesday (25)

This week, I'm waiting on...

Counting Backwards by Laura Lascarso. Here's what Goodreads has to say: When troubled Taylor Truwell is caught with a stolen car and lands in court for resisting arrest, her father convinces the judge of an alternative to punishment: treatment in a juvenile psychiatric correctional facility. Sunny Meadows is anything but the easy way out, and Taylor has to fight hard just to hold on to her sanity as she battles her parents, her therapist, and vicious fellow patients. But even as Taylor struggles to hold on to her stubborn former self, she finds herself relenting as she lets in two unlikely friends-Margo, a former child star and arsonist, and AJ, a mysterious boy who doesn't speak. In this striking debut, Laura Lascarso weaves together a powerful story of anger and self-destruction, hope and love.

How incredible does this sound? I love hard-hitting contemporaries, so this book is definitely for me.

Have you heard of this book? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
