Waiting On Wednesday: Amelia is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Amelia is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: May 10, 2012
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Pages: 304

Summary: On the night of Becca’s high school graduation, the discovery of an unidentified dead girl left to bleed out on the side of a dirt road sends the town—and Becca—into a tailspin. Becca has always longed to break free from her small home town, but as the violence of the outside world creeps into her backyard, she withdraws and retreats inward, paralyzed for the first time in her life. Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson’s life are intercut with Becca’s own coming-of-age summer, unfolding into the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and tense romantic relationships as the summer’s tumultuous events twist Becca closer and closer to the truth about Amelia’s murder.

My Thoughts: Whoa, this release sounds amazing! My first reaction is, what happened to Amelia? Who murdered her? How does Becca fit into the story? All questions that make me want to pick up this book as soon as it comes out. I'm really looking forward to uncovering the mystery behind the plot. In addition, the cover is so beautifully done. The underlying hint in the photo of the legs with dirt and flower just adds on to the anticipation.

Two intriguing perspectives for sure, it's hard to decide at first glance which I'm more likely to fall into more easily.

Ok, well that's a little intense. It sounds like an interesting format as well. May is so far away, but I may have to pick this one up now.

This sounds awesomely intense! And the cover is pretty.

That is an amazing cover. I love the font, and the dirt and flower on the girl is on the disturbing, yet somehow pretty, side. One of those eyecatchers.

Can I just say that I love the cover? It feels like one big representation of loss of innocence to me. Then again, I did just get out of class, so my analytical English major brain is turned on high at the moment. But still, the story sounds intriguing!
