WoW [79]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

How We Fall by Kate Brauning
Expected Publication: November 3, 2014
Publisher: Merit Press

Ever since Jackie moved to her uncle’s sleepy farming town, she’s been flirting—way too much—with her cousin, Marcus. Her friendship with him has turned into something she can’t control, and he’s the reason she let her best friend, Ellie, leave. But now Ellie has been missing for months, and the police are looking for her body. Swamped with guilt and the knowledge that being with her cousin would tear their families apart, Jackie pushes Marcus away. Fall out of love. That’s the plan.

Like she wanted him to, Marcus falls for a new girl—but something isn’t right about her, and Jackie’s search for the girl’s secrets only drives the wedge between Jackie and Marcus deeper. When Marcus pays the price for someone else’s lies and the mystery around Ellie starts to break, Jackie makes an irreversible choice. She can’t leave her first love behind, and she can’t let her best friend be her biggest failure.

Her first love is someone she can’t have. Her best friend will never come home again. One summer ends everything.

Why I Can’t Wait…
Sounds so odd I have to see what this is all about.

  2. You're right, it sounds kind of strange but I'm definitely interested! It reminds me a bit of Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma - which I loved - so I think I'll have to check this one out more. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I wonder how this one is written. It'd have to be a really good author to make that sort of connection between characters seem deep and real.

  8. I'm pretty excited for this one as well. It does sound pretty good and I like the cover a lot. I'll definitely be picking this one up when it's released.
