Waiting on Wednesday #9

Waiting on Wednesday #9
This is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where bloggers spotlight upcoming releases that they are eagerly anticipating.
The book I am most eager for this week is:-
by N.K. Traver:

I stumble onto this book yesterday when I was browsing the new releases for early 2015. While I am not normally up for the whole "bad boy turning good" clichéd romance-type storyline that idea that he is reflection wants to take over his life sounds absolutely incredible. I am tempted to preorder it right now but it doesn't come out until March. March! I cannot wait that long...

I love the cover. It isn't exactly pretty but it works - it looks "mirrory", has the parts of good and bad in different colours and has the reflections' hand. Awesome, awesome, awesome!
A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.
In private, seventeen-year-old Brandon hacks bank accounts just for the thrill of it. In public, he looks like any other tattooed bad boy with a fast car and devil-may-care attitude. He should know: he’s worked hard to maintain that façade. With inattentive parents who move constantly from city to city, he’s learned not to get tangled up in things like friends and relationships. So he’ll just keep living like a machine, all gears and wires.

Then two things shatter his carefully-built image: Emma, the kind, stubborn girl who insists on looking beneath the surface – and the small matter of a mirror reflection that starts moving by itself. Not only does Brandon’s reflection have a mind of its own, but it seems to be grooming him for something—washing the dye from his hair, yanking out his piercings, swapping his black shirts for … pastels. Then it tells him: it thinks it can live his life better, and it’s preparing to trade places.

And when it pulls Brandon through the looking-glass, not only will he need all his ill-gotten hacking skills to escape, but he’s going to have to face some hard truths about who he’s become. Otherwise he’ll be stuck in a digital hell until he’s old and grey, and no one will even know he's gone.
