Waiting on Wednesday (1)


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine to put a spotlight on upcoming books.


This week's title is:

Where it Began by Ann Redisch Stampler

"Gabby Gardiner wakes up in a hospital bed looking like a cautionary ad for drunk driving and lacking a single memory of the accident that landed her there. What she can remember, in frank and sardonic detail, is the year leading up to the accident.


As she takes us through her transformation from invisible girl to on-trend Girl Who Dates Billy Nash (aka Most Desirable Boy Ever), she is left wondering: Why is Billy suddenly distancing himself from her? What do her classmates know that Gabby herself does not? Who exactly was in the car that night? And why is Gabby left alone to take the fall?

Putting the pieces together will take every ounce of Gabby's strength. As she peels back the layers of her life, she begins to realize that her climb up the status ladder has been as intoxicating as it has been morally complex...and that nothing about her life is what she has imagined it to be."

It looks like the same type of books I enjoy reading. And the cover  looks so pure and beautiful.
