Waiting on Wednesday, #56


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

Here's my selection for this week...

I Was Here by Gayle Forman
Expected publication: January 27, 2015
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Gayle Forman. I have read every single book she's written and some even more than once. When I heard this was coming out, well January can't be here soon enough. This book sounds emotional and heart rending, but if I know Forman... I can say with certainty that I'm going to fall in love with her characters and her story. I can't wait to get my hands on this novel that I'm sure I'll absolutely adore!

Sooo, what book are you waiting on???

  1. I've never read anything by Gayle Forman but I've been meaning to do so... I'm actually eyeing on the If I Stay books... this sounds like another beautiful and emotional story by Forman (I should really read her books soon).. Nice pick!

  2. I can't wait for this book either! I added this on Goodreads before there was a cover or synopsis because I loved If I Stay and Where She Want so much. Unfortunately I haven't read Just One Day and the other books in that series and I'm not sure if I should anymore, it seems like there's too much drama in it for me. Back to the topic, this was a great choice, hope you'll enjoy it when it comes out. :)
