ONE PAST MIDNIGHT by Jessica Shirvington (WoW #177)

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


Above all else, though I try not to think about it, I know which life I prefer. And every night when I Cinderella myself from one life to the next a very small, but definite, piece of me dies. The hardest part is that nothing about my situation has ever changed. There is no loophole.

Until now, that is…

For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she Shifts to her ′other′ life – a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she′s a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she′s considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other.

With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments which bring her dangerously close to the life she′s always wanted… But just what – and who – is she really risking?

ONE PAST MIDNIGHT releases on July 22nd 2014 from Walker Children’s.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    This definitely sounds like a great read! This concept of going between two lives seems familiar to me… Movie? TV show?? Oh well, its a good sense of familiarity. Definitely going on my “Books to Buy in the Future” list.

    Wow I hadn’t heard of this one yet but it sounds fantastic! I also haven’t read any of Shirvinton’s other books, although I have Embrace so I really want to read it.

    Thanks for putting this on my radar!
