Waiting on Wednesday #25 - Kids of Appetite

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

My Waiting on Wednesday pick is:


Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: September 20, 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 Am I Waiting?
I have had my eye on Mosquitoland even though I haven't had a chance to read it yet.  This book sounds wonderful and I love the idea of a tragicomedy.   

What are you waiting for this week?

  5. I haven't finished Mosquitoland. It just isn't working for me right now (I plan to get back to it real soon. I really don't want to DNF a book). It sounds really interesting though. I'll definitely consider this one. I hope you enjoy it once you get to read it! :)
