Waiting on Wednesday: What Happens Now

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

What Happens Now by Jennifer Castle
Pub. Date: June 7, 2016


Goodreads says, ""I know what it is to want something so badly, you feel like your cells aren’t properly bonded together without it. I also know what it’s like to get that something And honestly, I’m still not sure which is worse..." Ari Logan is battling to win her war against depression and the dark night she hurt herself on purpose. It’s not easy: her best friend is drifting away, her mom’s emotionally checked out, and she spends her days playing caregiver to her handful of a half-sister, Danielle. But it’s summer, and anything is possible... That’s when Camden Armstrong steps onto the beach of Ari’s local swimming lake.  At first, Ari quietly longs for Camden from afar, seeing in him everything she wants to be. When the two discover a true connection the following summer, Ari lets herself fall not just for the quirky and self-assured Camden but also his friends, tumbling into their world of independence, adventure, and shared sci-fi fandom. As Ari’s romantic dreams come true, she must unlock the mysteries of the very real and troubled boy behind her infatuation, while also struggling with her own demons, obligations, and loyalties."

This sounds like a summertime read with substance. Also, can I please be transported to that cover? Love it! What do you guys think?

  1. I've noticed a number of YA books recently that deal with mental illness. I think it is a good trend because teens deal with difficult issues sometimes and it seems like a lot of attention is focused on adults and mental health but not as much on teens. Hopefully books like this will help teens to see beyond stigma and maybe relate to the characters.

    Nice pick!

  3. This looks like a book for you for sure Christina! I'm so nervous it's not going to end well since they're both struggling with demons, so I'm going to need you to tell me everything once you read it:)
