HAPPY WEDNESDAY GUYS!
Our WoW this week is this gorgeous book to my left - Whisper to Me by Nicholas Lake.

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: May 3rd 2016 by Bloomsbury Children's
Told entirely through flashbacks, Cassie recounts the events of that crazy summer--the exhilarating highs of new love, the frightening free-falls of personal demons and family tragedy, and the bumps along the way to forgiveness, acceptance, and self-discovery.
Award-winning author Nick Lake crafts a compulsively readable love story that will have readers savoring every moment--and eager to see how it all ends.
Why I'm waiting:
1) I love Nick Lake. I love his writing, and I love the fact that he manages to create characters and worlds that are vividly real. He's always written contemporary with an edge before, so excited to see how he does straight romantic contemp.
2) I LOVE the idea for this book. I'm a big softie/romantic at heart, and I love grand gesture of meeting someone, to prove that they still want to be with each other.
Bottom line: SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK.
