Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Release Date: May 27thth, 2014 from Balzer + Bray

S u m m a r y :

Lesh and Svetlana, two teens from St. Paul, Minnesota, are adrift in a sea of social coterie, desperate for something to change. When they crash into one another in a drunken bicycle accident at two am, they don’t yet know how close they are to finding it. For now, Svetlana is simply looking for a fifth member to legitimize the Central High School Gaming Club, and Lesh is looking to escape his being grounded for said drunkenness by entering, reluctantly, the world of online role playing games.

Lesh’s gaming life takes an interesting turn as, unable to figure out how to speak to Svetlana, he “becomes” her in-game. When real life and in-game life inevitably become entwined, Lesh and Svetlana both start to realize that the lines they draw to keep their lives in order are not so easy to maintain. Especially when you no longer understand why you drew them in the first place.

Reason for waiting:
There's been a lot of books based on gaming lately and as someone who plays games and especially MMORPG's, things like this totally intrigue me. Also, just look at that pixelated cover! I think pixels make everything better. Pixels, bacon and diced tomatoes :)

What are you waiting for this week?
