Waiting on Wednesday #WoW @Sa11eGreen #VikingJuvenile @penguinusa

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming reads which I can't wait to get my hands on.

This week my book is: 
Half Bad by Sally Green
Release date: March 4th 2014

Pre-order your copy today:
Amazon | TBD | Kobo | B&N 

In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and fifteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his sixteenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?

In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.

Ooh, I just love the sound of this one! Plus, the cover is pretty darn fantastic. :) AND how can you resist a synopsis that mentions Markus Zusak and Patrick Ness? Great pick!

My WoW! :)
