Asking For It
by Louise O'Neill


It's the beginning of the summer in a small town in Ireland. Emma O'Donovan is eighteen years old, beautiful, happy, confident. One night, there's a party. Everyone is there. All eyes are on Emma.

The next morning, she wakes on the front porch of her house. She can't remember what happened, she doesn't know how she got there. She doesn't know why she's in pain. But everyone else does.

Photographs taken at the party show, in explicit detail, what happened to Emma that night. But sometimes people don't want to believe what is right in front of them, especially when the truth concerns the town's heroes...
Louise O'Neill seems to be everywhere at the moment, and perhaps she deserves to be. Although I've not read her first book, Only Ever Yours, just yet, I have heard fantastic things about it, and it won the first ever YA Book Prize, hosted by The Bookseller, earlier this year.  Despite not having read her debut, I am already excited about this book, and as soon as I've read the one I already have (I'm confident I will like it too!), I will be picking this up and adding it straight to my shelves!
It sounds like a really disturbing, thrilling page-turner of a book, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
