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:
We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt
Expected Release Date: May 27, 2014
Nell knows a secret about her perfect, beautiful sister Layla. If she tells, it could blow their world apart.
When Nell and Layla were little, Nell used to call them Nellaya. Because to Nell, there was no difference between where she started and her adored big sister ended. They’re a unit; divorce made them rely on each other early on, so when one pulls away, what is the other to do? But now, Nell’s a freshman in high school and Layla is changing, secretive. And then Nell discovers why. Layla is involved with one of their teachers. And even though Nell tries to support Layla, to understand that she’s happy and in love, Nell struggles with her true feelings: it’s wrong, and she must do something about it.

Dana Reinhardt’s The Summer I Learned to Fly is one of my favorite books (maybe ever), and this is another one that looks like it’s right up my alley. A complicated look at the bonds between sisters, secrets, and an illegal and totally wrong relationship between a teacher and a student? I’m totally there. I can’t wait to read this one. Reinhardt is an author to check out if you haven’t.
What are you waiting on this week?
