WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #71: My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who seems scared of her, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel’s ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.

There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers the website Smooth Passages and its section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution. Better yet, a boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman), who’s haunted by a family tragedy, is looking for a partner.

But as their suicide pact starts to become more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, Aysel must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince.

This is a gorgeously written and compulsively readable debut novel about the transformative power of love and acceptance.

Expected publication: February 10th 2015 


This book sounds so full of darkness but with the possibility of hope. I don't think I've read a book that sounds quite like this one before.
What book are you patiently waiting for the release of?

  4. This doesn't sound like anything I've heard of. It certainly has a dark tone to it, but I agree with you that it sounds like hope is there. I'm curious. Great pick, thanks for sharing.
