WoW Pick of the Week!



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.


It has been way too long since I have read a book by Schroeder and I really like the way this one sounds, quite different from some of her others and I actually like how simple the cover is. 




Release Date: July 28, 2015 (Scholastic)

Book Description:

What do you do with your last day on earth?

Just over twenty-four hours are left until an asteroid strikes North America, and for Emerson and everyone else who didn't leave, the world will end. But Emerson's world already ended when she ran away from home. Since then, she has lived on the streets, relying on her wits and on her friend Vince to help her find places to sleep and food to eat.

The city's quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then Emerson and Vince meet Carl, who tells them he has been granting people's wishes -- and gives them his wallet full of money. 


Suddenly, this last day seems full of possibility. Emerson and Vince can grant a lot of wishes in one last day -- maybe even their own.

  9. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book! It's not as depressing as most because it's all about hope and doing good things for random people. It's more feel good I guess. Plus the book is dedicated to me and my friend Sara. But I loved because it was good, not because of my name being in it. ;)

  12. This sounds interesting! I haven't read anything from this author but I plan to since it's on Scribd. I also love the premise of this one, it kinda sounds familiar but end of the world themes always intrigue me. Thanks for sharing Kindlemom!

  19. That's a hard question. The honest answer is I have no idea what I'd do if I knew I'd be dead in twenty-four hours. :-/

    1. I know right? Spend as much time with family as I could would be my top choice!

  22. I love the cover! But, really, is it becoming a trend to write titles without capital letters on books???

    1. I think so. I have been noticing it a lot as well. Sort of bugs me. ;)

  25. Interesting premise..you have thinking about what we would do.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Huh. I'm really curious about the premise for this one (where does everyone else go? is interplanetary travel happening? what value does money have on the last day on Earth, anyway? i.e., does it lose its value entirely? who's left to collect it? or is there like crazy inflation?). Those are the places my brain has gone, so maybe I'll check this one out, too! :) Anyway, hadn't heard anything about this one yet, so I'm glad you wrote about it.

    1. LOL! I love all your very valid thought provoking questions!!

      Delete
  27. The premise sounds very interesting and unique-although one has to wonder would money even be worth something on the last day of earth? It also sounds like it will have a very sad ending. I will probably try to read it someday though-thanks for sharing :)
