Waiting on Wednesday (15): WE ALL LOOKED UP

Summary: They always say that high school is the best time of your life. 

Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried "they" might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can't wait to escape Seattle--and her reputation--and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn't understand all the fuss about college and career--the future can wait. 

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors--along with the rest of the planet--wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they're going to spend what remains of the present. 

Thoughts: I saw this cover long before I knew what it was about, and I was so intrigued. Actually, putting the blog post together was the first time I'd seen the cover up close enough to realize that the title is on the cover. I thought it was just the picture, and I thought that was so intriguing. Still, it sounds like a ridiculously good concept, sort of like Melancholia (but better), so I can't wait to read this one! 


  1. I can't wait to read this one as well, I'm so excited! I hope it won't end in tragedy though :(

    Ps. Come visit my blog and say hi! :D
