Waiting on Wednesday (40) : Whisper to Me, Nick Lake

Originally coming from the Breaking The Spine blog, Waiting on Wednesday allows me to talk about a book I just can’t wait to get my hands on !

Don’t forget to tell me about the book you’re eager to read, this week, in comments!

Whisper to Me, Nick Lake
Expected publication : May 3rd 2016
Publisher :  Bloomsbury Children’s

A remarkable story of strange beauty and self-discovery from Printz Award winner Nick Lake

Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely.

Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all.

A billion thanks to Ashley @ Socially Awkward Bookworm for this wonderful discovery! I know, another contemporary, again?! I know, I promise, I will try and be impatient about some great fantasy novels, too. ANY ADVICE, guys?! In the meantime, Whisper to Me sounds beautiful and kind of heartbreaking, I’m sure. I’m so excited to read it!!

    1. You’re right about this! I actually try to balance between fantasy/dystopia/other complex world books and contemporary. But I have to say lately I’ve been eyeing SO many contemporaries, I think I’m having a contemporary-obsession, ahah :p
      Thank you so much for commenting Kat! ❤ ❤

  1. Ah, this sounds absolutely lovely. I don’t usually reach out for contemporaries, but this sounds emotional, which is my favorite type of book. Also, the cover is GORGEOUS. T_T
