There's a lot of buzz surrounding an exciting new thriller coming November 5, Broken, by CJ Lyons. It's already being described as "suspenseful" and "chilling".
Here's a description from Sourcebooks:
Fifteen-year-old Scarlet has one chance for a normal life. Only problem? It just might kill her. Diagnosed with a rare and untreatable heart condition, Scarlet has never taken the school bus. Or giggled with friends during lunch. Or spied on a crush out of the corner of her eye. Scarlet has come to terms with the fact that she's going to die. Literally of a broken heart.
When Scarlet asks for a week to prove she can survive high school, every slammed locker and sideways glance sends her heart beating out of control. But for the first time in her life Scarlet makes real friends. She also makes new discoveries about the truth behind her illness... a truth that might just kill her before her heart does.
"As a former Pediatric ER doctor, CJ diagnosed Abby with Long QT Syndrome a mere 20 minutes after she was born. This rare, untreatable heart condition is the same disease Scarlet suffers from in BROKEN. Watch the video to find out how Abby copes with her disease and how she feels about being the inspiration of CJ’s debut YA novel!" - Sourcebooks
You can pre-order Broken at the special price of $4.99 (ebook only) if you order before November 5.
