Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
I'm so proud of myself; on Sunday, I sat down and worked on WOW posts for the rest of February including today's pick:
This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready
Published by Simon Pulse
Releases April 1, 2014
I really enjoyed Smith-Ready's "Shade" trilogy so I'm excited for more of her writing especially since it looks like this will be in the contemporary genre, my very fave! I also like that this will be looking at religious questions because that is an important element of my life and always prompts some good thinking for me. The romance is getting me intrigued and I'm dying to know what has happened to David's parents.Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.
Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.
But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined...
Does this sound interesting to you? I was able to download a copy from Edelweiss and will be publishing a review closer to the release date so we can discuss :)
