Waiting on Wednesday (52): Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Published by Simon Pulse
Ethan, aka “Scam”, has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn’t just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn’t consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts – like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. So now Ethan needs help. And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him – his former group of friends, the self-named “zeros” who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. Brought back together by Scam’s latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action. (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads.)
Scott Westerfeld is one of my favorite authors, and although I haven’t yet read his latest book, Afterworlds, I own it and I hope to read it soon. I also need to finish his Leviathan series! But Zeroes also sounds very cool and I can’t wait to read it!
