Waiting on Wednesday – Week 175

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

This week's WoW is:
For This Life Only by Stacey Kade

A young man struggles to move forward after the death of his twin brother in this gripping, coming-of-age tale about loss, redemption, love, and the moment you begin to see the world differently.

Three minutes.

Jacob Palmer died for three life-changing minutes.

And when he woke up, nothing was the same. Elijah, his twin brother, is dead, and his family is broken. Jace’s planned future is crushed, along with his pitching arm. Everyone keeps telling him that Eli’s in a better place, but Jace isn’t so sure. Because in those three minutes, there was nothing.

Overwhelmed by guilt and doubt, Jace struggles to adjust to this new version of the world, one without his brother, one without the certainties he once relied on. And then Thera comes into his life.

She’s the last girl he should be turning to for help.

But she’s also the first person to truly see him.

I'm sad to say that I haven't read many books that have featured a male protagonist, especially when it comes to young adult contemporary. This one sounds super amazing though. A little bit of emotion mixed with some (hopefully) cute romance definitely sounds like my cup of tea. I haven't read anything of Stacey Kade's yet, but I'm sure this one will live up to her other novels, which I've heard nothing but good things about.

What are you waiting on?
