WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #83: Even When You Lie to Me by Jessica Alcott

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

Fans of John Green's Looking for Alaska as well as Lauren Oliver and Sarah Dessen will embrace this provocative debut novel, an exploration of taboo love set against the backdrop of a suburban high school.

Charlie, a senior, isn't looking forward to her last year of high school. Another year of living in the shadow of her best friend, Lila. Another year of hiding behind the covers of her favorite novels. Another year of navigating her tense relationship with her perfectionist mom.

But everything changes when she meets her new English teacher. Mr. Drummond is smart. Irreverent. Funny. Hot. Everyone loves him. And Charlie thinks he's the only one who gets her.

She also thinks she might not be the only one with a crush.

In this stunning debut, Jessica Alcott explores relationships-and their boundaries-in a way that is both searingly honest and sympathetic.

Expected publication: June 9th 2015

I have such a weak spot for student/teacher relationships. It's not just the taboo nature of it, it's also seeing if it's a one sided attraction, and how the author manages to pull something like that off. 
I'm really excited for this!
What book are you patiently waiting for the release of?

  7. I'm not familiar with this one, Tracey! The fact that it's being compared to John Green and Lauren Oliver isn't actually encouraging to me, but that's me personally - I don't like contemporary all that much :D I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week :)
