Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!
Synopsis: 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.
I’ve had my eye on this one for a little while because it sounds like it’s going have some really interesting interpersonal relationships which is something I love to read. All of the reviews I’ve seen so far have been nothing but praise too, which is always a plus – if it’s something I think I’ll be interested in I’ll usually read it no matter the reviews, but it’s nice to see that everyone seems to be liking it so far, it just adds to the excitement! My best friend (Ashley @ Falling Down the Book Hole) was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this one and as soon as she finished it she texted me to say that it had left her completely without words, in a good way!
