Waiting on Wednesday #54 - Half Bad

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating

Half Bad by Sally Green
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: Mar 4 / 2014
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
A stunning, magical debut. An international sensation.
In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and fifteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his sixteenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?
In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.

Ever since I've found this book, I've been obsessing over it. I just CANNOT WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT. I need this book, badly. There's just no other way to describe it. I haven't read a good fantasy in a long time, so hopefully this will meet my expectations.
