Waiting On is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Sixteen-year-old Austin Szerba interweaves the story of his Polish legacy with the story of how he and his best friend, Robby, brought about the end of humanity and the rise of an army of unstoppable, six-foot tall praying mantises in small-town Iowa.
To make matters worse, Austin’s hormones are totally oblivious; they don’t care that the world is in utter chaos: Austin is in love with his girlfriend, Shann, but remains confused about his sexual orientation. He’s stewing in a self-professed constant state of maximum horniness, directed at both Robby and Shann. Ultimately, it’s up to Austin to save the world and propagate the species in this sci-fright journey of survival, sex, and the complex realities of the human condition.
Why I’m waiting?
I would never imagine in a million years that I would be intrigued by a book with bugs in it. I’ve read snippets of people’s reviews, saying that this is written bizarrely and I am strangely excited to see how it affects the story! Also, I loved this part: He’s stewing in a self-professed constant state of maximum horniness, directed at both Robby and Shann. Ahhhh. Yay to exploring sexuality!
