"Waiting on" Wednesday: Butter by Erin Jade Lange

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're super excited about. This week, my pick is:

By: Erin Jade Lange
Publication Date: September 18th, 2012

A lonely obese boy everyone calls "Butter" is about to make history. He is going to eat himself to death--live on the Internet--and everyone is invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his classmates, Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer indifference. What he gets are morbid cheerleaders rallying around his deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a lot like popularity. And that feels good. But what happens when Butter reaches his suicide deadline? Can he live with the fallout if he doesn't go through with his plans? With a deft hand, E.J. Lange allows readers to identify with both the bullies and the bullied in the all-consuming look at one teen's battle with himself.

Alright. I found this book on Goodreads while looking for things to buy off Barnes & Noble, and when I read the summary my one and only thought was, "What the ever loving ****?" And when a little summary can make me think that hard, I really have to find this. Guh. 

I've never read anything by Ms. Lange, but I am deeply looking forward to this book! Cannot wait! :D 

What book are you looking forward to?


  1. What the... indeed! I'm not so sure I'd be able to or want to identify with the bullies. Interesting concept though. I'll be keeping an eye out for your review. ;)

    1. Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing how on earth I can identify with someone egging on someone who has threatened to kill themselves, but we'll see what Erin does, I suppose. Haha Good! I'm glad someone is looking. Wish it was coming out sooner... *grumbles*


We love to hear from you!
