Waiting on Wednesday 8/29

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I also feature books that may have already released, but I am anxiously waiting to read.

This week, I'm featuring:

by Sharon Flake

Award-winning author, Sharon G. Flake, presents a powerful novel about a teen boy and girl, each tackling disabilities.
Autumn and Adonis have nothing in common and everything in common. Autumn is outgoing and has lots of friends. Adonis is shy and not so eager to connect with people. But even with their differences, the two have one thing in common ? they’re each dealing with a handicap. For Autumn, who has a learning disability, reading is a painful struggle that makes it hard to focus in class. But as her school’s most aggressive team wrestler, Autumn can take down any problem. Adonis is confined to a wheelchair. He has no legs. He can’t walk or dance. But he’s a strong reader who loves books. Even so, Adonis has a secret he knows someone like Autumn can heal.
In time, Autumn and Adonis are forced to see that our greatest weaknesses can turn into the assets that forever change us and those we love.
Told in alternating voices, Takedown explores issues of self-discovery, friendship, and what it means to be different.
Release: Oct 1 2012

  14. Is it so bad that the synopsis wants to make me cry? It sounds so heartbreaking and challenging. I think I'd LOVE to read this book, however looking at the challenges the pair both face would be hard.

    This seems the perfect book to pick in light of the start of the paralympics today! :)

  15. I can see that the book sounds incredibly interesting but it also will be a very tough book to read and this is why I won't be adding it to my to-read list. I do hope you enjoy it when you read it! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my WOW post!
