Waiting on Wednesday: PASSENGER by Andrew Smith

Jill at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

After reading the Marbury Lens I could not stop thinking about it. One of the most twisted and disturbing books I have ever read but it was riveting and I am beyond curious to know what happens next.
The Marbruy Lens, Book Two
by Andrew Smith
ISBN-13: 978-1250004871
Fiewel & Friends, 400 pages.
Amazon, B&N, Goodreads

Jack and Conner have a plan.

They think it's the only reasonable way to deal with the Marbury lens.

But the four boys - Jack, Conner, Ben, and Griffin - end up scattered in different places at different times. Jack is lost in a Marbury that isn't Marbury, a Glenbrook that isn't Glenbrook, pursued through every crumbling not-world by an uncaring cop trying to solve the mystery of Freddie Horvath's murder, and a deceitful kid named Quinn Cahill who believes he is the King of Marbury. Jack's universe is collapsing in on itself. He finds his friends. He finds his home.

There's always just one thing, and Jack knows it.

This can't be it.

I've seen Marbury Lenses around but hearing that it's one of the most "twisted and disturbing" books makes me want to read it! The sequel sounds really good too.

My WoW.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
