Waiting on Wednesday #63: Bang by Barry Lyga

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.

Title: Bang 
Author: Barry Lyga 
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers 
Expected Publication: April 18th, 2017 
Pre-order: Amazon | B&N 

Summary: A chunk of old memory, adrift in a pool of blood.

Sebastian Cody did something horrible, something no one--not even Sebastian himself--can forgive. At the age of four, he accidentally shot and killed his infant sister with his father's gun.

Now, ten years later, Sebastian has lived with the guilt and horror for his entire life. With his best friend away for the summer, Sebastian has only a new friend--Aneesa--to distract him from his darkest thoughts. But even this relationship cannot blunt the pain of his past. Because Sebastian knows exactly how to rectify his childhood crime and sanctify his past. 

It took a gun to get him into this.

Now he needs a gun to get out.

Unflinching and honest, Bang is as true and as relevant as tomorrow's headlines, the story of one boy and one moment in time that cannot be reclaimed.

This sounds heart-wrenching, but we love Barry Lyga so much that we have to give this a read.

What book are you waiting to get your hands on?

  3. This one sounds so heartwrenching and intense. Maybe not for me, but I hope you enjoy this one when you get to read it!

  4. I've not read a single Lyga book! I remember checking out one of his books from the library years ago (one of his earlier books) but never reading it. Such is life, right? I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, ladies. =)

  5. This sounds like a very powerful and heart-wrenching book. I know there are stories in the paper about young children who accidentally kill a sibling or family member and my heart goes out to them. I hope you enjoy this one and I look forward to hearing about it!
