waiting on wednesday (29)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event courtesy of Breaking the Spine
that showcases much anticipated upcoming releases.

 from goodreads: 08/28/2012
A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.

Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.

This has the promise to be a powerful book. Thankfully, the early reviews are fantastic, as I feel that tackling a subject like this will fall on one end of the spectrum - either it's great, or it tries hard to be great. I like the monochrome cover depicting shades of grey, with the red for the title, almost like it's Quinn's own personal scarlet letter. Lately I've been really interested in good contemps, and so I'm excited about this one.

I hadn't heard of this one, but it sounds really good. It's definitely got the potential to be something really solid. Thanks for sharing :0)

This sounds great! It seems like military in YA might be becoming a trend. My WoW pic this week was Something Like Normal. The MC in it just got back from overseas.

We JUST heard about this one, and it sounds pretty good. (Although we have a guess already as to what the secret she's keeping for her boyfriend might be...) Anyway, we're looking forward to checking this out!

And @Melanie-
We wouldn't mind the "military in YA" trend. It affects a lot of people. Dana Reinhardt had a good one a couple years ago called Things a Brother Knows.
