WOW: My Beating Teenage Heart

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It showcases books soon-to-be released that we are eagerly awaiting!
Title: My Beating Teenage Heart
Author: C.K. Kelly Martin
Publication Date: 9/27/11
Publisher: Random House
From Goodreads:
Ashlyn Baptiste is falling. One moment she was nothing—no memories, no self—and then suddenly, she's plummeting through a sea of stars. Is she in a coma? She doesn't remember dying, and she has no memories of the life she left behind. All she knows is that she's trapped in a consciousness without a body and she's spending every moment watching a stranger.
Breckon Cody's on the edge. He's being ripped apart by grief so intense it literally hurts to breath. On the surface, Breckon is trying to hold it together for his family and his girlfriend, but underneath he's barely hanging on.
Even though she didn't know him in life, Ashlyn sees Breckon's pain, and she's determined to find a way help him. As her own distressing memories emerge from the darkness, she struggles to communicate with the boy who can't see her, but whose life is suddenly intertwined with hers. In alternating voices of the main characters, My Beating Teenage Heart paints a devastatingly vivid picture of both the heartbreak and the promise of teenage life—a life Ashlyn would do anything to recover and Breckon seems desperate to destroy—and will appeal to fans of Sarah Dessen, John Green, and David Levithan.

Sounds like a good book to me!  Bonus: I don't have to wait long before it comes out :)  The cover looks awesome too and I'm always attracted to good-looking covers.

What's your "Waiting on Wednesday"?

Ellen Hopkins is my fave too! Her Crank series just blew my mind. They are some of my favorite books. I am sooo psyched I get to interview her for a blog tour for her new book Triangles! Have you read it yet? I am a little nervous to interview her though since I admire her so much! I have a million questions for her, I don't even know where to start!

I saw that you can order a signed edition of Perfect on Amazon for like $17...Did you get the signed version? I think I might spend the extra 6 bucks and get the signed one.
