"Waiting on" Wednesday (8): Passenger

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

Book: Passenger (The Marbury Lens #2) by Andrew Smith
Publication Date: October 2, 2012
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Jack and Conner have a plan. 

They think it's the only reasonable way to deal with the Marbury lens. 

But the four boys - Jack, Conner, Ben, and Griffin - end up scattered in different places at different times. Jack is lost in a Marbury that isn't Marbury, a Glenbrook that isn't Glenbrook, pursued through every crumbling not-world by an uncaring cop trying to solve the mystery of Freddie Horvath's murder, and a deceitful kid named Quinn Cahill who believes he is the King of Marbury. Jack's universe is collapsing in on itself. He finds his friends. He finds his home. 

There's always just one thing, and Jack knows it. 

This can't be it. - Goodreads

Read the synopsis? Let that sink in for a while.

Passenger is the next installment in The Marbury Lens series. The first book was The Marbury Lens which I believe was the most disturbing, creepiest book I've read last year. Just thinking about it made me remember how screwed I was back then. It was released on November 2010. Yup, it's been 2 years since the first book and I thought there'd be no more Marbury. But a month from now, Jack and Connor's adventure will start again.

I've still yet to decide whether I loved The Marbury Lens or not but I gave it 4 Cupids/stars. Maybe this October, I'll figure it out. It may look like I'm complaining about my reading experience but I swear, I'm super excited for the Passenger. For realz.
