Waiting on Wednesday: Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles

I know this is already out in America but I want the UK paperback to match my others which I loved. Anyone know who is publishing it and when??



Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles



Luis Fuentes has always been sheltered from the gang violence that nearly destroyed his brothers’ lives. But that didn’t stop him from taking risks—whether he’s scaling a mountain in the Rockies or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis can’t stop looking for the next thrill.

Nikki Cruz lives her life by three rules—boys lie to get their way, don’t trust a boy who says “I love you,” and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Her parents may be from Mexico, but as a doctor’s daughter, she has more in common with her north-side neighbors than the Latino Blood at her school. Then she meets Luis at Alex’s wedding, and suddenly, she’s tempted to break all her rules.

Getting Nikki to take a chance on a southsider is Luis’s biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by Chuy Soto, the new head of the Latino Blood. When Chuy reveals a disturbing secret about Luis’s family, the youngest Fuentes finds himself questioning everything he’s ever believed to be true. Will his feelings for Nikki be enough to stop Luis from entering a dark and violent world and permanently living on the edge?

I need to start reading this series, I've heard such great things!

I asked S&S if they had a publishing date for this one yet but she said that it's still being bid on so doesn't actually have a confirmed UK publisher yet. I really hope it gets sorted out soon because I'm desperate to read it but like you I'm waiting for the paperback that will match the first 2!

I keep debating whether or not to buy this one in hardback.. I don't think I have the other two books anymore, so it's not like I need it to match. But still, I don't know.
