WOW: Kids of Appetite

29 juni 2016

I know, I know, I'm not very good at doing bookish memes. Or, at least, I'm not good at the structure and planning that comes with it. I'm not one for doing a certain meme every single week. I'd rather do a TTT when the subject is interesting to me, a Friday Finds when I find exciting new books and a WOW when I find a book I'm really looking forward to. And, as you can see, I found a book that isn't published yet, but I'm very looking forward to, so here is another WOW! 

Kids of Appetite Title: Kids of Appetite
Author: David Arnold
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary
Published: by Viking Books for Young Readers on September 20th, 2016

'The bestselling author of Mosquitoland brings us another batch of unforgettable characters in this tragicomedy about first love and devastating loss. 
Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.It begins with the death of Vic’s father.It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.
This is a story about:
1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.3. One dormant submarine.4. Two songs about flowers.5. Being cool in the traditional sense.6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.9. A story collector.10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.11. Falling in love with a painting.12. Falling in love with a song.13. Falling in love.'

Why I'm waiting: I first spotted this book on Netgalley, and when I read the synopsis I was hooked! I mean, that 'this is a story about' list is very intriguing. I've heard a lot of good things about David Arnold's first book, Mosquitoland, so I hope Kids of Appetite will be just as good. 

What are you waiting on?
