Waiting on Wednesday (42)


Pieces of Us by Margie Gelbwasser

At home in Philly, Alex is angry. Angry at the dad who offed himself rather than stay around; angry at the mom who goes from one guy to the next without a thought for her family. Alex may be a player and a bully, but his little brother Kyle will do anything for his approval.

At home in the suburbs, Katie is Miss Popularity, the golden girl that everyone expects too much of, the one who will always be the prettiest and best in her parents eyes, and everyone else’s. Her shy little sister Julie just wants a bit of the attention that Katie gets so easily.

But during their summers at lake houses in Upstate New York, all four teens have a chance to leave their old identities behind. They can be anything here.

Here, no one knows the truly disturbing nature of Kyle and Alex’s dysfunctional relationship. No one knows that the girl Katie pretends to be is a lie. Julie never worries that Kyle is only spending time with her to get to her prettier sister. And the secrets that are threatening to destroy each of them seem are safe.

But secrets have a way of getting out…

Release date: March 8, 2012 (Flux)

I've had my eye on Margie's debut, Inconvenient, for a long time and this one sounds even better! Secrets, mysteries, and more...this looks awesome!

What are you waiting on?

  1. I saw this one the other day, it sounds interesting though it doesn't have any of the supernatural elements I usually search for in a novel.

    Here is my WoW ^^

  2. This one is new to me, thx! I love the premise. Almost sounds like something an adult would do when they went back home for a HS reunion.

  3. I haven't heard about this one! It sounds a bit like Tangled by Carolyn Mackler, but still. Definitely adding this to my TBR list! :D

  4. This one sounds really cool, and for some reason it reminds me a little of Mackler's Tangled, but in a "I want to read this too" way :D
