"Waiting On" Wednesday (61): The Living

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

This week I'm excitedly waiting on...

The Living
by Matt De La Pena
Random House

Shy took the summer job to make some money. In a few months on a luxury cruise liner, he'll rake in the tips and be able to help his mom and sister out with the bills. And how bad can it be? Bikinis, free food, maybe even a girl or two—every cruise has different passengers, after all.

But everything changes when the Big One hits. Shy's only weeks out at sea when an earthquake more massive than ever before recorded hits California, and his life is forever changed.

The earthquake is only the first disaster. Suddenly it's a fight to survive for those left living.

Holy Tidal Wave, Batman! That awesome cover, with the hand coming out of the waves and the big, orange font, drew me in immediately. And that synopsis?! I love how vague it is. Like, we don't know how much catastrophic shit is gonna hit the fan, but we know it's going to be epic...oh, please, please let it be epic! Yep, I'm excited for this one!

What are you waiting on this week?!
