Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.

 

There are so many books I’m excited about, so I’ll definitely keep doing Waiting on Wednesday. With that said, here’s my pick that I can’t wait for.

 

Hello

Title: Hello?
Author:  Liza Wiemer
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
Publication date: November 10, 2015
Summary (via Goodreads): One HELLO? can change a life. One HELLO? can save a life.

Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma’s death.
Emerson: A guy who lives his life to fulfill promises, real and hypothetical.
Angie: A girl with secrets she can only express through poetry.
Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past.
Brian: A potter who sets aside his life for Tricia, to the detriment of both.

Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens’ stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope.

Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia), narration (Emerson), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda), narration and drawings (Brian).


Why I Chose This Book:

This book sounds really interesting, and it’s set in Wisconsin (my state), which I love. It’s gotten great reviews so far, so I really can’t wait to read my eARC that I recently received from Netgalley. Hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy this unique, powerful sounding story soon!

    1. I know, especially since Wisconsin isn’t that popular of a setting for books! Yes, I totally agree that it makes a book more personal. You’re so welcome and thanks!

  1. This book looks really good! This meme is totally cool, too. You are so lucky to have a copy, I’ll be adding this to my TBR first thing! 🙂
