"Waiting On" Wednesday 89

The Julian Game by Adele Griffin

Amazon.com:

All new girl Raye Archer wants is a way into the in crowd, so when ice-queen Ella Parker picks her to get back at her ex, the gorgeous Julian Kilgarry, Raye is more than game. Even if it means creating a fake Facebook identity so she can learn enough about Julian to sabotage him. It's a fun and dangerous thrill at first, but Raye hadn't counted on falling for Julian herself and igniting Ella's rage.

As Raye works to reconcile the temptress Elizabeth with her real-life self, Ella serves up her own revenge, creating an online smear campaign of nasty rumors and trashy photographs. Suddenly notorious, Raye has to find a way out of the web of deceit that she's helped to build, and back to the relationships that matter.

Adele Griffin's riveting novel explores the issues of generation Facebook: the desire to be someone else, real versus online friends, and the pitfalls and fallouts of posting your personal life online for all the world to judge.

Released August 26th 2010

Not really sure what's going on with the cover looks like they've taken this facebook fight into outerspace and the future a la the Fifth Element, but maybe the book will clue me in to what's happening there. Anyhow the book sounds great. I really like stories that deal with technology and how it can be used for good and for BAD. And mean girl stories are always interesting too!

What can't you wait for to be released?

  1. That cover is rather freaky! Maybe you'll know what it means when you read the book.
