Waiting on Wednesday #16: Live Through This



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

 My pick for this week is:


Live Through This
When a relationship trespasses the boundaries of trust, the consequences are complex in this nuanced page-turner from "a formidable talent" ("Booklist")

Sometimes hiding the truth requires more than a lie . . .

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 from the annoying drama. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a stepdad and mom who would stop at nothing to keep her and her siblings happy and safe.

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 fa├žade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now, Coley and Reece are getting closer, and as Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

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

---
I read Mindi Scott's first novel, Freefall, and loved it, so I am looking forward to Live Through This too.  I also like the cover.  I am excited to read about the "relationship that crossed the line."  I want to find out what secrets Coley is hiding.  When this book comes out on October 2nd, I am going to pick it up.

What are you Waiting On this Wednesday?

  4. I already have a good guess on that majoy lie, and I'm not liking it. Positively, in this case, because it'd make the book really good if it's handled right. So I hope you'll enjoy this once it comes out.
    Thanks for sharing, and for stepping by. Happy reading!
