"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:
Publication Date : January 27th, 2015
The only books I've read by Gayle Forman are If I Stay and Where She Went, both of which I absolutely loved and both of which I gave five bold star reviews. (If you haven't read this duology, you should do so ASAP!) After reading these two books, actually after just the first one, I fell in love with Gayle Forman's storytelling.( I haven't read her other duology, Just One Day and Just One Year, but I definitely plan on getting to it, sooner rather than later.) So, when I found out that she had a new book coming out, I immediately added it to my TBR. At this point, it had no title, no cover, no synopsis. It was Untitled by Gayle Forman and I new I had to read it. As I am writing this, I can honestly that I still have not read the synopsis. Nonetheless, I am eagerly waiting on this book.
Synopsis from Goodreads:Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.
When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.
I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.
