Waiting on Wednesday

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles of books we are eagerly anticipating.

Don't know why I checked the author's website, but found this last week and am so psyched! I recently reviewed her amazing debut, Butter.

Dead Ends by Erin Jade Lange. Bloomsbury, September 3. 2013. 

Synopsis from author's website: Dane Washington doesn’t think he’s a bully. Some guys just need to be put in their place. But Twain High doesn’t see it that way, and Dane is on the brink of getting kicked out of school – until the boy with Down Syndrome moves in across the street.
Billy D. has the power to keep Dane out of trouble, and he’ll do it for a price. Dane has to help Billy D. find his missing dad.
But Billy’s only clue is an atlas full of riddles and towns that don’t appear on most maps. As the boys unravel the clues and get closer to finding Billy’s dad, Dane realizes the biggest riddle of all may be the one Billy D. is keeping to himself.


  1. Butter was.. strange and this also sounds like a very different book. I think I like it! :)


  2. Lol! I just found your review of it. You make some good points. I briefly wondered some of the same things, but decided to buy in. I did feel like I was watching a train wreck. It was a difficult book to read.

    Thanks for stopping by. Your WoW sounds intriguing. Haven't read historical fiction in a while.


  3. I like the author’s description of Dead End. It sounds like an appealing plot. I’ll put the title on my list of books to read.
