8:00 AM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: September 20, 2011
Publisher: Dutton

Summary (from Goodreads):
Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them - and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.

Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.

Elizabeth Scott is among my favourite authors and the day I find myself not enjoying one of her novels will be a very sad one indeed. So it goes without saying that I'm definitely looking forward to the release of As I Wake! The novel sounds really mysterious and it will be interesting to uncover why Ava hasn't felt comfortable in her own skin since returning home from the hospital. It looks like secrets will certainly be spilled...
