Dear Patrick Ness & Release,

Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…

Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.Goodreads

Let me shout, I LOVE EVERYTHING THAT PATRICK NESS WRITES. I never fail to fall head over heels in love with his books. He can make me bawl like a baby in just a few words.

I was already excited for this book because of Patrick Ness, but “inspired by Mrs. Dalloway”? UH YES. There isn’t a lot of information about this book, but I am nevertheless frickin’ excited! I know Release will crush my soul, and I’ll happily take it.
