Can't Wait Wednesday #39: #murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil

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.  This week I'm featuring a book by one of my favorite authors.  It's a standalone, YA futuristic murder mystery story.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest 8/18 citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.

When eighteen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?

What do you think?  Does it sound good to you?  Kinda reminds me of that movie Minority Report.  Have you read anything by this author?  I've read almost all of her other books, and they all grab me and keep me hostage when I pick them up, I can't put them down!  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?
