Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Social Suicide (Deadly Cool #2)
By: Gemma Halliday
Release Date: April 24, 2012

"Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting. Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper's brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went...a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH's resident body finder, I'm stuck trying to prove that Sydney's death wasn't suicide. I'm starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos..." (Summary from

I'm looking forward to Social Suicide because I really enjoyed Deadly Cool and I can't wait to see what Hartley is going to get herself into this time.
