Waiting on Wednesday: You against me by Jenny Downham

You against me by Jenny Downham
Published by David Flickling Books on 2nd December 2010

It's rare for me to post on a book I haven't already preordered. In this case I haven't because I have put it on my wishlist on amazon in the hope someone will buy it for me for christmas. If not I'll get it in the new year. I literally can't wait for this book as it looks fab and I loved her first book so much. Can't wait!


If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's been accused of a terrible crime and you're the main witness, then you banish all doubt and defend him. Isn't that what families do? When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her at a party, his world of work and girls begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the crime, but says he didn't do it, her world of revision, exams and fitting in at a new school begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide. Brave and unflinching, this is a novel of extraordinary skillfulness and almost unbearable tension. It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it's a book about love - for one's family and for another.

This sounds like it could be a very moving read. I haven't read Jenny Downham's other book yet although we have it in my library.
