Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Let’s try getting things right this time, since last week I posted a book that was already out as my WoW – it was definitely a “needs more coffee” kind of day – how about we post one that really isn’t out yet this week…
We don’t have long to wait for this one to hit shelves, and if you pre-order I hear the author will send you an exclusive, limited edition signed poster & bookmark!
THE FIRST TIME SHE DROWNED
Author: Kerry Kletter
Release Date: March 15, 2016 | Publisher: Philomel Books
The beautiful struggle of a girl desperate for the one relationship that has caused her the most pain
Cassie O'Malley has spent the past two and a half years in a mental institution—dumped there by her mother, against her will. Now, at 18, Cassie emancipates herself, determined to start over. She attends college, forms new friendships, and even attempts to start fresh with her mother. But before long, their unhealthy relationship threatens to pull Cassie under once again. As Cassie struggles to reclaim her life, childhood memories persist and confuse, and Cassie must consider whose version of history is real, and more important, whose life she must save.
