Can't Wait Wednesday #32 - Bobby Sky: Boy Band or Die by Joe Shine

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Okay, this week is a book I just happened to stumble across on Edelweiss and the title grabbed me.  I started reading the synopsis, and at first wasn't sure, but the last part totally sold me.  This is one that seems like such a unique story that I can't wait!  If only I was on the Soho Teen ARC list and could get a copy of it, but for now I'll just wait until it gets closer to the time of release and maybe download it from Edelweiss.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:


At fourteen, Robert “Hutch” Hutchinson is out of luck. His charm and singing voice—and penchant for bursting into song at all the wrong times—can’t keep him out of trouble anymore. When he’s arrested (again): he’s given a choice: die in juvie or become a Shadow: the fearless, unstoppable, and top-secret guardian of a Future Important Person, or FIP. 

With nothing to lose, Hutch accepts. After two grueling years at the Future Affairs Training and Education (FATE) Center, Hutch can barely remember the boy he once was. His entire existence has been erased. Ready for anything, he expects to be plunged into a battle zone. 

Instead he learns that his FIP is someone named Ryo Enomoto. Yes, the Ryo Enomoto: front-man of world-famous boy band International. Worse, Hutch has to put his old talents to use. He must join the band and change his name to Bobby Sky. Is this for real? Has he really turned himself into a lethal killing machine . . . only to become a teen pop sensation?  


Does that not sound like a really fun and unique story?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?
