Waiting on Wednesday: CONSIDER by Kristy Acevedo

It's that time of week again -- WAITING ON WEDNESDAY! I have a super awesome one for you guys this week that I have been excited about for a while but that was renewed when I saw the cover reveal and chapter one excerpt (which I have linked below for you to check out!) My choice for this week is...

CONSIDER by Kristy Acevedo
Winner of the 2015 PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award

As if Alexandra Lucas’ anxiety disorder isn’t enough, mysterious holograms suddenly appear from the sky, heralding the end of the world. They bring an ultimatum: heed the warning and step through a portal-like vertex to safety, or stay and be destroyed by a comet they say is on a collision course with earth. How’s that for senior year stress?

The holograms, claiming to be humans from the future, bring the promise of safety. But without the ability to verify their story, Alex is forced to consider what is best for her friends, her family, and herself.

To stay or to go. A decision must be made.

With the deadline of the holograms’ prophecy fast approaching, Alex feels as though she is living on a ticking time bomb, until she discovers it is much, much worse.

Check out this post for the cover reveal and an excerpt! 
Guys, I saw this one during #FAC16 but I have officially fallen in love with the series. I can't wait to read it and I am eagerly waiting for the day I can preorder it so I know I will have a copy in my hands. I think what I love most about it is that the main character has an anxiety disorder, JUST LIKE ME. Finally a character I can relate to in that sense! I'm really excited to see Alex and her journey.

What do you guys think? 
Have you heard of it before now? What are you expecting out of it?

See you guys next Wednesday for another round of WoW!
