Waiting on Wednesday

New WoW

This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books.

This week’s pick is:

word for yes

The Word for Yes

Release date: February 16th 2016

Goodreads: After their parents’ divorce, Jan, Erika, and Melanie have to get used to the new world order: a father who’s moved to another continent and a mother who throws herself into moving on. Jan, off at her first semester of college, has plenty to worry about, including an outspoken roommate who’s kind of “out there” and an increasingly depressed and troubled long-distance boyfriend. Her younger sisters, left at home in New York City, and dealing with all the pressures of life in high school, aren’t exactly close. Erika is serious and feels awkward and uncomfortable in crowds, though her beauty tends to attract attention. Melanie is socially savvy and just wants to go out—to concerts, to parties, wherever—with her friends. The gap between all three girls widens as each day passes.
Then, at a party full of blurred lines and blurred memories, everything changes. Starting that night, where there should be words, there is only angry, scared silence.
And in the aftermath, Jan, Erika, and Melanie will have to work hard to reconnect and help one another heal.
At once touching and raw, Claire Needell’s first novel is an honest look at the love and conflicts among sisters and friends, and how these relationships can hold us together—and tear us apart.

Why I’m excited: As someone with three sisters who haven’t always been close, this calls to me. It sounds like a book that could leave a deep impression on me and I look forward to seeing the sisters reconnecting and healing together.

  1. Sounds intense. I have two much younger sisters that I have gone through several stages with, sometimes we’ve been really close, but then lately we seem to be a little bit apart. Great pick!

  2. This one sounds really good…definitely seems like it will be an emotional read.

  3. This book is definitely up my alley.I always enjoy reading emotional reads with a family element to it ,something that isn’t seen much in new adult. Cant wait to get my hands on this novel!
