Waiting on Wednesday (#16)

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

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

The Catastrophic History of You And Me

Hardcover, 288 pages
Expected publication: February 21st 2012 by Penguin Young Readers Group

Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever.

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

"Inventive, gorgeous, funny and yes . . . heartbreaking. You will absolutely love this book." — Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and Delirium
I'd love to read this one. It comes out shortly after the Valentines Day Wand, well, it sounds quite intriguing. If Lauren Oliver is recommending this book, I don't need to think twice about reading it! :) 

What's your WOW this week? Leave me a linky, I'll drop by!

Seems like an awesome read! But i am a bit skeptical of brie though because I usually like strong female characters. And she let some unworthy male break her heart literally! Come on now!
