Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
Pointe by Brandy Colbert
Expected Release Date: April 10, 2014
Theo is better now.
She’s eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.
Donovan isn’t talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn’t do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she’s been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might be worse.

There’s a lot to unpack here, despite the very short summary. I like that this novel’s summary doesn’t give away the plot, because lately, I feel like I can tell what the entire book will be based on its description. But this one seems to be pretty layered, and I’m hoping that it’s as nuanced as it hints at being. It’s definitely going to be a dark one, that’s for sure.
I love that it’s about ballet, at least partially, and I’m looking forward to figuring out how that gets worked into the other parts of the plot. Or if it does at all.
What are you waiting on this week?
