Waiting on Wednesday: Anything But Ordinary

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Goodreads:

An inspiring, bittersweet love story about making every day count.

Bryce remembers it like it was yesterday. The scent of chlorine. The blinding crack and flash of pain. Blood in the water.

When she wakes up in the hospital, all Bryce can think of is her disastrous Olympic diving trial. But everything is different now. Bryce still feels seventeen, so how can her little sister be seventeen, too? Life went on without her while Bryce lay in a coma for five years. Her best friend and boyfriend have just graduated from college. Her parents barely speak. And everything she once dreamed of doing—winning a gold medal, traveling the world, falling in love—seems beyond her reach.

But Bryce has changed too, in seemingly impossible ways. She knows things she shouldn’t. Things that happened while she was asleep. Things that haven’t even happened yet. During one luminous summer, as she comes to understand that her dreams have changed forever, Bryce learns to see life for what it truly is: extraordinary.


Anything But Ordinary by Lara Avery will be released by Hyperion on September 11, 2012.

I’m intrigued by the premise of waking up after five years of being in a coma and having to put your life back together. I’m a bit nervous about the “knowing things she shouldn’t” aspect of the summary. I’m not sure where the premonition plotline will go, but I’m excited to give this book a shot because the rest sounds fantastic.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
