Waiting on Wednesday #37

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on Going Underground - Susan Vaught

Del is a good kid who’s been caught in horrible circumstances. At 17, he’s trying to put his life together after an incident in his past that made him a social outcast—and a felon. As a result, he can’t get into college; the only job he can find is digging graves; and when he finally meets a girl he might fall in love with, there’s a whole sea of complications that threaten to bring the world crashing down around him again. But what has Del done? In flashbacks to Del’s 14th year, we slowly learn the truth: his girlfriend texted him a revealing photo of herself, a teacher confiscated his phone, and soon the police were involved.

This one sounds really interesting, especially because there have been lots of "sexting" cases lately. I like the idea of a teen being a gravedigger for an occupation. This comes out September 13th from Bloomsbury.


  1. This sounds so so so good. It definitely intrigued me & I really like the cover. Thanks for sharing! I'll be looking out for it. :)

  2. Hmm this one does sound interesting! I think that sexting has become a pretty big issue, and I'm interested to see how the book deals with it.
