Waiting on Wednesday: The Sharp Time by Mary O’Connell


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly memo that is hosted by Breaking the Spine Blog.

This week I am featuring The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell

So more about the book….

Expected Release Date: 8th November 2011


Sandinista Jones is a high school senior with a punk rock name and a broken heart. The death of her single mother has left Sandinista alone in the world, subject to the random vulnerability of everyday life. When the school system lets her down, her grief and instability intensify, and she ponders a violent act of revenge.
Still, in the midst of her crisis, she gets a job at The Pale Circus, a funky vintage clothing shop, and finds friendship and camaraderie with her coworker, a boy struggling with his own secrets.
Even as Sandinista sees the failures of those with power and authority, she's offered the chance to survive through the redemptive power of friendship. Now she must choose between faith and forgiveness or violence and vengeance.


Best wishes
