What Am I Waiting On?
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Expected Publication: December 10th 2013 by Disney Hyperion
It’s a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.
Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.
Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?
Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.
Why Am I Waiting?
Well, just look at that cover. I first saw this highlighted over at The Midnight Garden here where there was a brilliant post on the background to the novel and how the authors went through lots of changes of title to end up with this one. However, now I have to say I don’t think anything else will fit. It’s so long away for December though and I do not want to wish that time away, but this book I will be awaiting eagerly.
