Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

The Cupid War
Timothy Carter
August 8, 2011

"Dark entities known as Suicides attack the living, causing depression in people and feeding on their negative emotions. Their enemies are the Cupids, who make people fall in love. The main character, Ricky Fallon, becomes a Cupid after his death, and learns that he’d been the victim of a Suicide during his life. He is assigned to a high school, where he must bring couples together while protecting them from Suicide attacks. I wanted to suggest a supernatural cause for mood disorders, the way I suggested in evil? that Fallen Angels were responsible for religious fanaticism. That way, I could turn depression into an enemy that can be fought and beaten."
-From the author's Goodreads page.

This book is definitely on the top of my list for 2011 releases. You guys probably already know by my past Waiting on Wednesdays that I'm pretty obsessed with reading books about teenage depression. I think Timothy's idea of making depression an enemy is genius. Also with all the other supernatural stories that have been made to explain occurrences I feel it's about time mood disorders got its turn! There needs to be more books about teens battling depression since it is so common. I cannot wait to read this book. I have a feeling it will be life changing.
