Waiting On Wednesday: The Bodies We Wear

The Bodies We Wear
Author: Jeyn Roberts
Publisher: Knopf Books For Young Readers
Publication Date: September 24, 2014

A streetwise girl trains to take on a gang of drug dealers and avenge her best friend’s death in this thriller for fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander.

People say when you take Heam, your body momentarily dies and you catch a glimpse of heaven. Faye was only eleven when dealers forced Heam on her and her best friend, Christian. But Faye didn’t glimpse heaven—she saw hell. And Christian died.

Now Faye spends her days hiding her secret from the kids at school, and her nights training to take revenge on the men who destroyed her life and murdered her best friend. But life never goes according to plan. When a mysterious young man named Chael appears, Faye’s life suddenly gets a lot more complicated. Love and death. Will Faye overcome her desires or will revenge consume her?
My Thoughts: I'm really getting in to gritty YA novels and this one sounds like it is going to be just that!

  1. I have been waiting for the YA heroine who can really hold a candle to Lisbeth, and I hope that Faye is the one!!
