Wish List Wednesday

Seven Deadlie: A Cautionary Tale by Gigi Levangie, October 17, 2013. Published by Blue Rider Press.
Perry Gonzalez is not like the other kids in her Beverly Hills high school—a full-blooded Latina on a scholarship, living in a tiny apartment with her mother, she doesn’t have much in common with the spoiled, privileged kids who are chauffeured to school every morning. But Perry is a budding young writer with her sights set on Bennington—and her seven deadly stories are her ticket to the Ivory Tower. To pay her way, Perry’s been babysitting (correction: teenage-sitting) and tutoring the neighborhood kids, and she has seen the dark side of adolescence: lust for the “Judas Brothers” that leads to electrocution at a private birthday party concert; wrath that inspires new and perverse family bonds; and greed, in a young Bernie Madoff acolyte who conceives of a copycat Ponzi scheme involving his own grandmother.
Why: First off, I really like the cover on this one. While I do love the cover for Seven Deadlies, what really has me wanting to read this one is that it sounds different. Right now, I think different is what I need in a book.
