Waiting on Wednesday – Week 58

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming reads which I'm DYING to get my hands on.

This week's WoW is:
Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield

An arresting un-coming-of-age story, from a breathtaking talent.

Becca has always longed to break free from her small, backwater hometown. But the discovery of an unidentified dead girl on the side of a dirt road sends the town--and Becca--into a tailspin. Unable to make sense of the violence of the outside world creeping into her backyard, Becca finds herself retreating inward, paralyzed from moving forward for the first time in her life.

Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson's life are intercut with Becca's own summer as the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and relationships on the edge twist the reader closer and closer to the truth about Amelia's death.

This cover is absolutely breathtaking. The title is completely WOW and just that alone makes me want to read it! Sounds like a fabulous contemporary with a dash of mystery.

What are you waiting on?


  1. It's definitely worth it! I got completely and amazingly lucky, and snagged a copy in a Librarything giveaway. I loved it! Worth the wait. :)

  2. Sounds good! I like the "two stories in one" kind of concept and hope it'll be enjoyable. And it's going to be next month! Hope you'll get to read it then. :)
