Waiting on Wednesday (34): Minders by Michele Jaffe

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week:

by Michele Jaffe
Release Date:  January 30, 2014
Published by Razorbill

A high concept, cinematic read with a surprising twist, MINDERS asks the question: who is really watching who?

Q: If the boy you love commits a crime, would you turn him in?

Sadie Ames is a type-A teenager from the wealthy suburbs. She’s been accepted to the prestigious Mind Corps Fellowship program, where she’ll spend six weeks as an observer inside the head of Ford, a troubled boy with a passion for the crumbling architecture of the inner city. There’s just one problem: Sadie’s fallen in love with him.

Q: What if the crime is murder?

Ford Winters is haunted by the murder of his older brother, James. As Sadie falls deeper into his world, dazzled by the shimmering pinpricks of color that form images in his mind, she begins to think she knows him. Then Ford does something unthinkable.

Q: What if you saw it happen from inside his mind?

Back in her own body, Sadie is faced with the ultimate dilemma. With Ford’s life in her hands, she must decide what is right and what is wrong. And how well she can really ever know someone, even someone she loves. (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads.)

I think that cover is so cool, and the idea of observing someone from inside their head sounds really interesting!

    That sounds pretty cool! It's creepy how people can see the minds of others' like that, but it's intriguing enough that I'd like to read about it. Thanks for sharing! — My WoW

    I'm definitely curious, but I'll wait to see what you think. I think the idea will be hard to execute.
