Waiting on Wednesday (93)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Wherever You Go by Heather Davis - To be released November 14th, 2011

Seventeen-year-old Holly Mullen has felt lost and lonely ever since her boyfriend, Rob, died in a tragic accident. The fact that she has to spend most of her free time caring for her little sister and Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather doesn’t help. But Holly has no idea that as she goes about her days, Rob’s ghost is watching over her. He isn’t happy when he sees his best friend, Jason, reach out to help Holly with her grandfather—but as a ghost, he can do nothing to stop it. Is his best friend really falling for his girlfriend?

As Holly wonders whether to open her heart to Jason, the past comes back to haunt her. Her grandfather claims to be communicating with the ghost of Rob. Could the messages he has for Holly be real? And if so, how can the loved ones Rob left behind help his tortured soul make it to the other side?

The summary of this one kind of reminds me of Chasing Brooklyn. Which I haven't read, so it could be totallt different, but whatevs.


The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell - To be released November 18th, 2011

Sandinista Jones is a high school senior with a punk rock name and a broken heart. The death of her single mother has left Sandinista alone in the world, subject to the random vulnerability of everyday life. When the school system lets her down, her grief and instability intensify, and she ponders a violent act of revenge.

Still, in the midst of her crisis, she gets a job at The Pale Circus, a funky vintage clothing shop, and finds friendship and camaraderie with her coworker, a boy struggling with his own secrets.

Even as Sandinista sees the failures of those with power and authority, she's offered the chance to survive through the redemptive power of friendship. Now she must choose between faith and forgiveness or violence and vengeance.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I love her name!!! This one will probably make me cry, but that's not a bad thing, right? Also, I love the cover.

So what are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina

  3. These both sound so sad :( I don't know if I could handle reading about all that grief without getting seriously depressed.

    Glad to have found your fun blog!
