Book Trailer Thursday is a feature inspired by Once Upon a TwilightWe are hoping to promote not only new books that are out or are soon to be out on the shelves, but to also promote the creation of book trailers themselves! Make sure to post a comment below and let us know what you've found out there this week!

This week’s trailers:

Survive  
Author: Alex Morel
Release Date: August 22, 2012
Published by: Razorbill

Jane is on a plane on her way home to Montclair, New Jersey, from a mental hospital. She is about to kill herself. Just before she can swallow a lethal dose of pills, the plane hits turbulence and everything goes black. Jane wakes up amid piles of wreckage and charred bodies on a snowy mountaintop. There is only one other survivor: a boy named Paul, who inspires Jane to want to fight for her life for the first time.
Jane and Paul scale icy slopes and huddle together for warmth at night, forging an intense emotional bond. But the wilderness is a vast and lethal force, and only one of them will survive. (Summary from Goodreads)

I featured this for my Waiting on Wednesday a couple if weeks ago, and now there's a book trailer out for it! I can't wait to read this one and it came out yesterday! If you've already read it...how is it?



Author: Deborah Heiligman 
Release Date: August 14, 2012
Published by: Knopf Books for Young Readers

Rachel thought she was grown up enough to accept that no one is perfect. Her parents argue, her grandmother has been acting strangely, and her best friend doesn't want to talk to her. But none of that could have prepared her for what she overheard in her synagogue's sanctuary.
Now Rachel's trust in the people she loves is shattered, and her newfound cynicism leads to reckless rebellion. Her friends and family hardly recognize her, and worse, she can hardly recognize herself. But how can the adults in her life lecture her about acting with kacanah, intention, when they are constantly making such horribly wrong decisions themselves? This is witty, honest account of navigating the daunting line between losing innocence and entering adulthood--all while figuring out who you really want to be. (Summary from Goodreads)

It's the music in this one that gets to me. It pulls me in and makes me feel like this is going to be a story with an emotional journey. And the first question in the trailer--goodnes, me-oh-my. I want to read it now! :)

What's your favorite book trailer of the week?
