Waiting On Wednesday #118 - Zeroes


Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -


Zeroes - Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, Deborah Biancotti
ISBN - 9781481443364
Publisher - Simon Pulse
Release date - September 29 2015

'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.' - Goodreads

I haven't heard much about Zeroes but with Scott Westerfeld and Margo Lanagan so it can't be all bad! I'm intrigued by the synopsis so will definitely be looking out for a copy of this one.
