“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week’s pre-publication, “can’t-wait-to-read” book is a by an author I’ve never read:

Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: October 2nd 2012 

From Goodreads:
From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a mom and stepdad who would stop at nothing to keep her siblings and her happy.

But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now that Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

In this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel, Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect.

Live Through This sounds darker than I usually go with YA contemporary novels, but there’s something about the premise that really gets me. I read Mindi’s letter about why she wrote the book, and I was hooked. I’ve had her first novel, Freefall on my TBR list first ages, but I might go with this one first.

Also, Mindi has the best covers ever. So gorgeous! I love the outfit, the confetti, the contrast of the white skirt with the dark background…lovely.

  2. I love this cover. This premise is exactly what I love reading in YA contemporary. The darker side is more appealing to me. Definitely on my wishlist.
