Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!

I haven't done one of these in a really long time but I'm really looking forward to....

  Try Not to Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard.

Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again. 

Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.

I loved The Secret Year.  Jennifer's writing is both beautiful and thought provoking. If you don't already, you should follow Jennifer on Twitter.  I love her tweets about the writing process and frequent discussions about the YA genre.

  10. I'm intrigued. I've been venturing out of the paranormal romance genre these days, and Try Not to Breath definitely sounds like a winner.
