Someone Else's Life, by Katie Dale
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Release Date: February 2, 2012
Pre-Order: Amazon  
When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all... Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own - one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all...

This sounds really good.  I can't even really explain why. It just does! The whole plot sounds interesting. I hope I get to read it soon. =)
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I like the cover of this one, also the summary! Great pick!


  2. I love that cover! It stands out from all the dark paranormal stuff on the shelves. Huntington's disease is scary stuff, so I'm excited to see where the story goes! :)

  3. I do too! And yes, it definitely is. I'm very interested to see where it goes and how the character will grow.

  4. The cover of this is very interesting-the girl angled to the side  and her whole body shown instead of having her head partially chopped off. I'm also a sucker for a good contemporary so I'm excited about that aspect.

  5. This one looks so brilliant - I cannot wait for it!

  6. Yes! Books with characters on the cover with their heads cut off annoys me so much!

  7. I can't either! I'm pretty excited for it.
