"Waiting on" Wednesday - Lovely, Dark, and Deep

Hosted by Breaking The Spine, this section will feature future upcoming releases that I personally am excited about. These will generally be coming up later in the year. Let me know what you're looking forward to, or even what you're writing, and maybe I'll feature it here as well.

Amy McNamara - Lovely, Dark, and Deep

Pub Date: November 13, 2012
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing
Format: Hardcover/ebook 256 pages
Age Range: Young Adult

About a high-school senior, who, in the aftermath of a car accident that kills her boyfriend and throws her carefully planned future into complete upheaval, retreats to the deep woods of Maine to live with the artist father she barely knows and meets a boy who threatens to pull her from her safe, hard-won exile.

A resonant debut novel about retreating from the world after losing everything—and the connections that force you to rejoin it.

Since the night of the crash, Wren Wells has been running away. Though she lived through the accident that killed her boyfriend Patrick, the girl she used to be didn’t survive. Instead of heading off to college as planned, Wren retreats to her father’s studio in the far-north woods of Maine. Somehwere she can be alone.

Then she meets Cal Owen. Dealing with his own troubles, Cal’s hiding out too. When the chemistry between them threatens to pull Wren from her hard-won isolation, Wren has to choose: risk opening her broken heart to the world again, or join the ghosts who haunt her.

Very interesting! Hopefully this is a great new novel :o) And actually, I scheduled this WoW a long while back but got this at ALA this weekend! YAY! So.. what are YOU waiting for? Let me know and leave me a link. Thanks! Happy Wednesday :o)
