Waiting on Wednesday: Delacorte Books for Young Readers Edition

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It is a great way to draw attention to those books not yet released but well awaited.

Here is my fourteenth Edition of Waiting on Wednesday!  This is something I decided to do only every other Wednesday to make room for my new feature Whatcha Think About Wednesday.  Because of this, I have decided to give each WOW a theme and to show you at least two books... apparently more this week.

Waiting On Wednesday: Delacorte Books for Young Readers Edition

Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
Release Date: September 13, 2011
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

"These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which as they kiss consume." —Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare 
The most tragic love story in history . . . 
Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell
Release Date: November 08, 2011
Published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers

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.
