“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW pick is one I’m super curious about – is it YA? Is it MG? Who knows?!

Expected publication date: September 10th 2013

If Ruby Wright could have her way, her dad would never have met and married her stepmother Willow, her best friend George would be more than a friend, and her mom would still be alive. Ruby knows wishes can’t come true; some things just can’t be undone. Then she discovers a tree in the middle of an Ohio cornfield with a wormhole to nine alternative realities.

Suddenly, Ruby can access completely different realities, each containing variations of her life—if things had gone differently at key moments. The windshield wiper missing her mother’s throat…her big brother surviving his ill-fated birth…her father never having met Willow. Her ideal world—one with everything and everyone she wants most—could be within reach. But is there such a thing as a perfect world? What is Ruby willing to give up to find out?

Physics, guys. It’s no secret that I love me some physics in my YA books. Doesn’t the idea of trying to change different parts of your life by accessing a wormhole sound amazing to you? Are you a literary nerd like I am who can’t do science to save her life, but really likes the IDEA of it? 

Also, look at that beautiful, physics-y cover. The colours! 

Are you guys fans of science in YA like I am? Or are you, like, NO MORE SCHOOL in my YA? Does RELATIVITY appeal to you? If not, what are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments!
