Waiting on Wednesday #63

A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

So this week pick is

Publication Date:  September 9th 2014
Publisher:   Greenwillow Books

On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road.

Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? Vividly narrated by Liz’s imaginary friend from childhood, a friend she long ago abandoned, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect?
Love the title and the tagline and this book has such a beautiful cover. Simple yet so pretty. The synopsis has got me intrigued.  It sounds like a heart wrenching read but I'm ready to get my heart broken.


  1. I recently added this to my tbr list just because it sounds good. It makes me think that it'll be one of those life inspirational books :3 Nice pick!

    Check out my Wow

  4. This sounds really touching and sad. I've never read a book told from an imaginary friend's perspective and I think that aspect is really unique. Great pick! :)

    Check out my WoW if you have a moment? :)
