“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week, I’m waiting on Burning by Danielle Rollins
* I was first drawn to this book because of the cover. The premise sounds really interesting and creepy. I love these kinds of books and I’m really curious about the young girl and what she did. It’s described as, Orange Is The New Black meets Carrie, and that sounds pretty awesome to me.

They must find a way to get out, but how can they save themselves when the world has forgotten them?
