Waiting on Wednesday: Want to Go Private? by Sarah Darer Littman

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I know I have already read & reviewed this book, but it definitely warrants its own WOW. Want to Go Private? by Sarah Darer Littman is coming out August 1st & I really wish it was in my budget to buy this one. This is such a good parable for the current generations that I highly recommend it to anyone who works with adolescents.

Abby and Luke chat online. They've never met. But they are going to. Soon.

Abby is starting high school—it should be exciting, so why doesn't she care? Everyone tells her to "make an effort," but why can't she just be herself? Abby quickly feels like she's losing a grip on her once-happy life. The only thing she cares about anymore is talking to Luke, a guy she met online, who understands. It feels dangerous and yet good to chat with Luke—he is her secret, and she's his. Then Luke asks her to meet him, and she does. But Luke isn't who he says he is. When Abby goes missing, everyone is left to put together the pieces. If they don't, they'll never see Abby again.

Honestly, I don't know what more I could say about this phenomenal book. Striking & haunting Want to Go Private? will leave you stunned. What are you waiting on this week?
