Waiting on Wednesday #2 WE ALL LOOKED UP

For my second WoW post, I'm going with a book I randomly stumbled across on Goodreads. For some reason, I can't stop thinking about it!

Waiting on Wednesday is a cool feature over at Breaking the Spine where we drool over forthcoming books that we can't wait to read.

Here is mine:

Goodreads synopsis:
Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel.

They always say that high school is the best time of your life.

Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried “they” might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can’t wait to escape Seattle—and her reputation—and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn’t understand all the fuss about college and career—the future can wait.

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors—along with the rest of the planet—wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they’re going to spend what remains of the present.

It reminds me a bit of The Day the World Ended, which I reviewed last year. And what a bold choice for a cover, with the title and author's name sooo tiny. I'm waiting somewhat impatiently for this little gem.
