Waiting on Wednesday (105) — THE 39 DEATHS OF ADAM STRAND by Gregory Galloway

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

The 39 Deaths of Adam Strand

Adam Strand isn’t depressed. He’s just bored. Disaffected. So he kills himself-39 times. No matter the method, Adam can’t seem to stay dead; he awakes after each suicide alive and physically unharmed, more determined to succeed and undeterred by others’ concerns. But when his self-contained, self-absorbed path is diverted, Adam is struck by the reality that life is an ever-expanding web of impact and forged connections, and that nothing-not even death-can sever those bonds.

THE 39 DEATHS OF ADAM STRAND will be released 2013 from Dutton Juvenile.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    This sounds awesome o.O I've never heard of it before!
    The wants-to-kill-himself-but-doesn't-succeed part reminds me of an episode in the German author Ralf Isau's first book of the Kreis der Dämmerung series, wich I loved (I don't know if the books were translated into English). Thanks for pointing it out to me!

    My WoW pick
