Waiting on Wednesday (83)


My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi
WHAT NOW?
Lucy just had the worst week ever. Seriously, mega bad. And suddenly, it’s all too much—she wants out. Out of her house, out of her head, out of her life. She wants to be a whole new Lucy. So she does something the old Lucy would never dream of.
And now her life will never be the same. Now, how will she be able to have a boyfriend? What will she tell her friends? How will she face her family? Now, every moment is a precious gift. She never thought being positive could be so negative. But now, everything’s different…because now she’s living with HIV.
Release date: April 1, 2013 (Sourcebooks Fire)

I've never read a YA book about someone with HIV, so I'm interested in seeing how Verdi tackles it. This sounds like it will be a heartbreaking read!

What are you waiting for?

Waiting on Wednesday Is Hosted By: Breaking the Spine

  1. Love the sound of this! The only other YA I've heard of dealing with HIV is Soul Love by Lynda Waterhouse. Amazing book!
