Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s book:
Author: Paula Stokes
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: August 16, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads): Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, have always been inseparable. Together, the two of them survived growing up in a Korean orphanage and being trafficked into the United States.
Now they work as digital stunt girls for Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it’s bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city’s hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you, for a price.
When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter won’t rest until she finds her sister’s killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the neural recordings her sister made, Winter isn’t sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she’ll have to untangle what’s real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process.
I absolutely cannot wait for Vicarious to come out! I am a huge fan of Paula Stokes and absolutely loved The Art of Lainey and Liars, Inc. This concept sounds so intriguing, and I can’t wait to read more. I mean, digital stunt girls?! That sounds so incredible. I am desperately waiting until April for the release of this one.
