20342549 The Bodies We Wear

Author: Jeyn Roberts
Publisher: Knopf for Young Readers
Release Date: September 23, 2014

Link to Goodreads:

A streetwise girl trains to take on a gang of drug dealers and avenge her best friend’s death in this thriller for fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander.

People say when you take Heam, your body momentarily dies and you catch a glimpse of heaven. Faye was only eleven when dealers forced Heam on her and her best friend, Christian. But Faye didn’t glimpse heaven—she saw hell. And Christian died.

Now Faye spends her days hiding her secret from the kids at school, and her nights training to take revenge on the men who destroyed her life and murdered her best friend. But life never goes according to plan. When a mysterious young man named Chael appears, Faye’s life suddenly gets a lot more complicated. Love and death. Will Faye overcome her desires or will revenge consume her?
Why I'm Excited:

It's hard not to get excited for a heroine who is compared to Lisbeth Salander, and the whole training-at-night thing kind of reminds me of Hit Girl. Plus, I also love a good revenge story. This book sounds really intriguing (although who isn't weary when the read the words "mysterious young man"?). I'm definitely keeping my eye for this one.

  3. Ooh, I like gritty stories...I really liked Takedown (though for the life of me I can't remember the author. I feel REALLY bad) and this sounds similar. Basically: thrillers rock. I'm adding it!

  4. This one is new to me…sounds promising. I haven't read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but I have been meaning to. Thanks for sharing this one!

  5. This one sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing

  6. So this title totally brings up a super creepy image for me haha. But yes, totally love a good revenge story! Thanks for highlighting this!

    Here's my WoW at Bookmunchies (:

  7. Oooh...I hadn't heard of this one, but I'm adding it to my TBR list. I loved Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. And you're right about "mysterious young man," I wonder if we did a search how many YA novels would include that in the synopsis. It doesn't say he's hot, but I guess that's a given. :) Great pick! ~Pam

  8. I can't wait for this one either! I love Jeyn Roberts' Dark Inside series, so I'm hoping that this one is just as good.

  9. Whoa this definitely looks intense. I always meant to read her first series and this one looks good, too!

  10. She sounds like a kick-ass character. Sign me up!


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
