On My Wishlist #6: You Against Me



On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City where you can talk about a book you want to read but haven't actually bought yet.

My pick for this week is...

You Against Me by Jenny Downham
(Amazon / Goodreads)

Goodreads description:

If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's been accused of a terrible crime and you're the main witness, then you banish all doubt and defend him. Isn't that what families do? When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her at a party, his world of work and girls begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the crime, but says he didn't do it, her world of revision, exams and fitting in at a new school begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide. Brave and unflinching, this is a novel of extraordinary skillfulness and almost unbearable tension. It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it's a book about love - for one's family and for another.

I liked this author's debut novel, Before I Die, and I hope this one will be just as good - the story sounds great!

  2. This book has been on my to-read list FOREVER. I don't know why, but I'd thought it would be published way earlier...Goodreads says December 2 but Amazon says September 13. Argh.
