I haven't read Hate List by Jennifer Brown yet but I've heard it's incredible so I was excited to learn about her upcoming release. Bitter End looks like a gritty real book dealing with an incredibly important issue.
At first, Alex is blissfully happy. Sure, Cole seems a little jealous of her relationship with her best friends, Zack and Bethany, but what guy would want his girlfriend spending all of her time with another boy? But as the months pass, Alex can no longer ignore Cole's small put-downs, pinches, or increasingly violent threats. As Alex struggles to come to terms with the sweet boyfriend she fell in love with and the boyfriend whose "love" she no longer recognizes, she is forced to choose - between her "true love" and herself.
Bitter End by Jennifer Brown will be published May 10th 2011 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
What are you Waiting on this Wednesday?
