"Waiting On" Wednesday: Minders by Michele Jaffe

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

My WoW pick this week is:

Title: Minders

Publication Date: January 30th 2014
Genre: Young Adult Sci-Fi
ISBN:  9781595146588

A high concept, cinematic read with a surprising twist,MINDERS asks the question: who is really watching who?

Q: If the boy you love commits a crime, would you turn him in?

Sadie Ames is a type-A teenager from the wealthy suburbs. She's been accepted to the prestigious Mind Corps Fellowship program, where she'll spend six weeks as an observer inside the head of Ford, a troubled boy with a passion for the crumbling architecture of the inner city. There's just one problem: Sadie's fallen in love with him.

Q: What if the crime is murder?

Ford Winters is haunted by the murder of his older brother, James. As Sadie falls deeper into his world, dazzled by the shimmering pinpricks of color that form images in his mind, she begins to think she knows him. Then Ford does something unthinkable.

Q: What if you saw it happen from inside his mind?

Back in her own body, Sadie is faced with the ultimate dilemma. With Ford's life in her hands, she must decide what is right and what is wrong. And how well she can really ever know someone, even someone she loves.

Pre-order Links:

I think this cover is genius because it fits perfectly with the summary. I LOVE how their heads are breaking off into these chunks/pieces and then said chunks/pieces converge to form the title. I almost feel as if I'm eye raping this cover every time I look at it.(As creepy as that may sound.)  : )~ 
This sounds like a very interesting concept, and I am extremely interested to see how it will be executed. It has the potential to be a very intense, emotional, and thrilling read. I love how the blurb is written in Q & A form. It's different, and it really makes you think about how you might answer them. And when you think about it, what seems like the obvious answer, may not be so black and white.
