Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm picking: Pretenders (Pretenders, #1) by
October 1st 2013
My picture is on page
eighteen of Noble High's Phoenix yearbook. I am one of the Phoenix Five.
You nominated me. You thought I was one of the most outstanding
students in our freshman class. You were wrong.
Still, I accepted
my award. I acted special. But I couldn't help wondering what it was
like to be that way for real. So I broke into Ms. Silver's safe in the
faculty lounge and stole all five of our journals. I'm not exposing them
out of jealousy or anger. I'm doing this because I am tired of the
lies. The bar is too high, and cheating is the only way to reach it.
Instagrams are filtered, Facebook profiles are embellished, photos are
shopped, Manti T'eo's girlfriend was a fake...is anything real anymore?
I found the answer in our journals. These are 100 percent real and 100 percent unedited. The proof is in the pages.
Why I'm Waiting on It:
I willing to give the author one more chance. Her books tend to be a bit immature for me, but I still have high hopes for the series.
