Waiting on Wednesday: Gone, Gone, Gone

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

Summary from Goodreads:

It’s a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge, trying to make sense of the random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives.

Craig’s crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him…and if he’ll do it again…and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.

Lio feels most alive when he’s with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable, and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.


Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz will be released by Simon Pulse on April 17, 2012.

Basically, if Hannah Moskowitz writes it, I will read it. I’ve had the galley of this sitting on my Nook taunting me for a long time and I keep putting it off in order to read stuff that is already out or closer to the pub date, but as the release of this looms closer I just might not be able to help myself anymore.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • This sounds intense but really good. I tend to shy away from 9/11 stuff normally because it is so emotional but this might be a good one to help me ease into the topic.

    • I usually do, too, but mostly because it is handled poorly and I get upset. I trust that this book won’t do that to me. David Levithan is one of the few other authors I have trusted with 9/11.

      • Hi Melody,I enjoyed your video very much. My mom alawys told me, every dark cloud has a silver lining and storms will pass. I’m holding on to that in times of despair or when things aren’t going well. Dolly Parton puts it this way If you want a rainbow you’ve got to put up with the rain. All the Best,Ilka

  • I’ve had this on my nook for months, too. WHY haven’t I read it yet? I’m not sure. I don’t think I’ve heard much about it yet, but if you read it, I need updates 🙂

  • If you haven’t read it yet, definitely do it. It is wonderful. Hannah Moskowitz writes characters that just stick with you. I read it when I first downloaded the galley – I couldn’t wait until closer to the release date. But I will read it again – and again and again. It is that good.

    • Given that glowing recommendation, I think I’m going to read it next. Pub date is close enough 😉
