Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.
So here’s what I’m waiting on this week!
The You I’ve Never Known
Author: Ellen Hopkins
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Publication Date: January 24th 2017
Arielle’s life is a blur of new apartments, new schools, and new faces. Since her mother abandoned the family, Arielle has lived nomadically with her father as he moves from job to job. All she’s ever wanted is to stay in one place for an entire school year, and it looks like she might finally get her wish. With a real friend, Monica, who might be even more than a friend soon, things are starting to look up.
But Arielle’s life is upended—and not by her father, but by her mom, who reveals that she never left Arielle. Instead, Arielle’s father kidnapped her, and her mom has been left searching ever since. She wants to take Arielle away, but Arielle has no connection with her mother, and despite everything, still loves her father. How can she choose between the mother she’s been taught to mistrust and the father who sewed that suspicion?
Why I’m Waiting
This will be my first Ellen Hopkins book. I’ve heard she is an outstanding author that delves into topics that dark and important. Super excited to read this one!
P.S. Ellen Hopkins is the author of the Crank, Impulse, Burned, and Tricks series!
