Waiting on Wednesday

 

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



All the Bright Places
Author: Jennifer Niven
Publication: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Release Date: January 6, 2015


Synopsis:

Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.

Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.

When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Gayle Forman, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven.


Thoughts:

I've been keeping an eye on this one for the past few weeks. The cover is simply beautiful and cool to look at. The synopsis (or the blurb) looks promising; plus, I'm a fan of those authors listed above! 

I know now what I'm getting for my birthday, since the release date falls on my birthday!
