Waiting on Wednesday {9}

http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
 
 
The cover is nice and all but what really makes me want to read this are the first from the synopsis describing the book:
 
"John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park..."
 
That sounds amazing. I haven't read either of those books (don't worry, they're at the top of my TBR) but I've heard and seen nothing but rave reviews on both of them. So a book that takes the best of both worlds just has to be good right. I mean, everyone is expecting nothing less than good. Ideally, it would be the perfect book based on just that description. Anyway, here's the full synopsis:  
 
Synopsis from Goodreads:
John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park in this beautifully written, incredibly honest, and emotionally poignant novel. Cammie McGovern's insightful young adult debut is a heartfelt and heartbreaking story about how we can all feel lost until we find someone who loves us because of our faults, not in spite of them.

Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.
 
When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.
