Waiting on Wednesday: All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill.
Publication Date: September 3rd 2013.




All Our Yesterdays – Disney Hyperion
“You have to kill him.” Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.
Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.
Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.
Synopsis from goodreads.com

The little question of “what if”can lead to the most amazing thing. I believe that it can also drive you completely and irreparably insane. The human mind is a curious thing and will keep asking. At least I think that there are few decisions that are never called into question. Apart from the “No, thanks, I’d rather not go swimming with box jellyfish” decisions. Anyway, stories that play around with time and decisions and their outcome have always intrigued me and this one sounds complex while at the same time seeming to be quite straightforward. And yes, I’m aware that it has already been published in the UK ... I like this cover better though. Go and watch the prequel web series if you want to find out more.

Which decision have you recently called into question? Feel free to share them along with your Wednesday book of choice.
