Waiting on Wednesday # 44



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you pick a book that is coming out soon that you want to read.

18392459We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach

Summary from Goodreads:

Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel.

They always say that high school is the best time of your life.

Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried “they” might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can’t wait to escape Seattle—and her reputation—and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn’t understand all the fuss about college and career—the future can wait.

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors—along with the rest of the planet—wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they’re going to spend what remains of the present.


My Notes:

The plot just seems amazing.

  1. I hadn't heard of this one yet, though the cover is intriguing and the synopsis is as well. Taking an already difficult time of life for making decisions and heightening it with something like the possibility of a fatal asteroid would only make that time harder.

    Also, I just finished All Fall Down (I see that's what you're reading right now) and I hope you're enjoying it! I found it to be a very interesting (albeit different for Ally Carter) read!

  2. I hope this isn't a double post, but my first one didn't seem to go through. Anyway, I can't WAIT for this book. Ever since I read the summary I've been chomping at the bit for it. I love world-disaster type stories. What does that say about me? LOL!!

  3. Haven't heard of this one but it sounds like a different sort of story. Hopefully it lives up to its expectations.
