Feature and Follow Friday

Feature and Follow Friday

F&F Friday is a weekly blog meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.

The aim of Feature and Follow is to increase blog followers and make friends.
1.     First leave your name on the original post and then create a post on your own blog that links back to the original post
2.     Then visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
3.     Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.

4.     How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed. All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.



This week’s question: If you could get an ARC of any book, already published, or not yet, what would it be?



This Is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang
Publication: March 22nd 2016 by Greenwillow Books, 304 pages
The heart-wrenching new novel about best friends on a collision course with the real world, from the author of Falling into Place.

Janie and Micah, Micah and Janie. That’s how it’s been ever since elementary school, when Janie Vivian moved next door. Janie says Micah is everything she is not. Where Micah is shy, Janie is outgoing. Where Micah loves music, Janie loves art. It’s the perfect friendship, as long as no one finds out about it.

But when Janie is date-raped by the most popular guy in school—a guy she’s had a crush on for years—she finds herself ostracized by all the people she thought were her friends. Now only Micah seems to believe she’s telling the truth. But when even Micah expresses doubt about whether or not she was “asking for it,” it leads to disastrous consequences, and Janie Vivian goes missing.

Using a nonlinear writing style and dual narrators, Amy Zhang’s astonishing second novel masterfully reveals the circumstances surrounding Janie’s disappearance.
 


This book just seems like a very interesting read with the topics (I’m guessing) of rape culture, friendship and mistakes involved. The book is being released in 2016 so it’s quite far away but I just want to read it now.
