This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books.
This week’s pick is:
Release date: January 17 2017
Goodreads: OCD-afflicted Griffin has just lost his first love, Theo, in a drowning accident. In an attempt to hold onto every piece of the past, he forges a friendship with Theo’s last boyfriend, Jackson. When Jackson begins to exhibit signs of guilt, Griffin suspects he’s hiding something, and will stop at nothing to get to the truth about Theo’s death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, readers will question Griffin’s own version of the truth both in terms of what he’s willing to hide and what true love means.
Why I’m excited: I absolutely loved Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not and if this book can give me the same feels, I am all in. It also seems like it has that unreliable narrator trope that’s popular right now and I don’t think that’s something I’ll ever tire of.
