Waiting On Wednesday, which is hosted by Jill at BreakingtheSpine! It's basically a Wednesday meme that "spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This Wednesday, I'm waiting on:
Try Not to Breath by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Expected publication: January 19th 2012 by Viking Juvenile
A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again.
Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.
Why is this my WoW:
I love books from Male POV's and this looks like it's being told from Ryan's POV so brownie points for that. It's contemporary/romance/realistic fiction, my favorite genre ever AND, I will admit this: I hate drama in real life and in movies but for some reason, in books I LOVE drama. I like tears and fighting and screaming. It's entertaining and I urge it and this looks like it will be filled by drama if "dark and provocative" is any indication so I'm definitely excited for this to come out.
