Butter by Erin Jade Lange
Bloomsbury, 272 Pages
Expected US Release: October 2, 2012
A boy everyone calls “Butter” is about to make Scottsdale High history. He’s going to eat himself to death live on the Internet – and everyone will watch.
He announces his deadly plan to an army of peers and expects pity, insults or even indifference. Instead, he finds morbid encouragement. When that encouragement tips the scales into popularity, Butter has a reason to live. But if he doesn’t go through with his plan, he’ll lose everything.
Doesn't this sound fantastic? I love the idea of bringing in modern technology and mixing it with all the high school issues of popularity and drama. Just the description is so evocative. This could turn out to be a really original, moving book.
