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…
Expected publication: June 7, 2016
Publisher: HMH Books for Young Readers
How it begins…
"You're in my English class, right?"
I almost checked behind me to make sure she wasn't talking to someone else.
How it unravels…
“You can be my best friend without being my only friend."
Her words were knives raked along my skin. I could hear the goodbye in every syllable.
How it Ends.
Why should I keep her secrets when she didn't keep mine? All it would take was one little click and a carefully worded message.
How it Ends is an honest, heart-wrenching tale of a friendship from first meeting to breakup. Told through alternating points of view, it is about two best friends’ tumultuous sophomore year of bullying, boys and backstabbing and what can happen when friends choose assumptions and fear over each other.
Despite the description not giving away too much about the novel, I can tell this YA Contemporary is going to keep it real… I love this genre because there are times you can dive into a contemporary to simply escape, fall in love, or what I assume in this case will be to remind yourself how tough life can be in high school. I'm really looking forward to How It Ends by Catherine Lo. The topical subject coupled with the great early ratings have me believing it might end up at the top of my bookshelf.
Sooo…. what book are you waiting on?
