Splintered by A. G. Howard. Unabridged audiobook on 10 compact discs, 12.5 hours. Read by Rebecca Gibel. AudioGo, May 28, 2013. 9781620647257.
I've already read this intriguing debut, but read a review of the audio on The Starry-Eyed Revu and knew I needed to reread with my ears. Maybe not soon, but definitely rereading. Especially since the sequel, Unhinged, (need to feature in a WoW) is due to drop in January. So excited for that as well.

Publisher synopsis: That’s what some girl tells Piddy Sanchez one morning before school. Too bad Piddy doesn’t even know who Yaqui Delgado is, let alone what she’s done to piss her off. All Piddy knows is that Yaqui hates her — and she better watch her back because Yaqui isn’t kidding around.
So that's what's new with me. What's new with you?
