This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books.
This week’s pick is:
Release date: November 3rd 2015
Goodreads: Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.
As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she’s unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she’ll always be trapped in the past.
Why I’m excited: I absolutely loved the characters Courtney C Stevens created in Faking Normal and the way she handled the sensitive subject matter in that book so I have confidence I’ll fall in love with these characters just as much and that it’ll be handled with the same care. Sadie’s journey as she heals sounds like it can be very touching and inspiring.
