Waiting on Wednesday (167)

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Symptoms of my Insanity by Mindy Raf

When you’re a hypochondriac, there are a million different things that could be wrong with you, but for Izzy, focusing on what could be wrong might be keeping her from dealing with what’s really wrong.

I almost raised my hand, but what would I say? “Mr. Bayer, may I please be excused? I’m not totally positive, but I think I might have cancer.” No way. Then everyone at school would know, and they would treat me differently, and I would be known as “Izzy, that poor girl who diagnosed herself with breast cancer during biology.”

But Izzy’s sense of humor can only get her so far when suddenly her best friend appears to have undergone a personality transplant, her mother’s health takes a turn for the worse, and her beautiful maybe-boyfriend is going all hot and cold. Izzy thinks she’s preparing for the worst-case scenario, but when the worst-case scenario actually hits, it’s a different story altogether—and there’s no tidy list of symptoms to help her through the insanity.

Release Date: April 18, 2013


  1. Love this cover and am intrigued by the mention of hypochondria-it will be very interesting to see how the author incorporates it.

  2. Interesting cover and interesting summary. This is the first I've heard of it but it sounds like something I'd like so thank you for sharing.

  3. I love the sound of this. A hypochondriac heroine will be super interesting. Great choice!

  4. I just read about this the other day. Looks like a good read. Feel free to come by and checkout my WoW

  5. Sound unique and crafty. I think it would be a great change up read - no paranormal stuff - just all contempt. Nice pick, I'd not heard of this one before.

    I just don't like the cover though - total turn off.

  6. This sounds good. I hadn't heard of it before. Thanks for the suggestion! Please stop by my WoW!

  7. Sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy reading this one when it comes out. I'd love to read some reviews of it. Nice pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.
