Waiting on Wednesday: Lovely, Dark, and Deep

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

Summary from Goodreads:

A resonant debut novel about retreating from the world after losing everything—and the connections that force you to rejoin it.

Since the night of the crash, Wren Wells has been running away. Though she lived through the accident that killed her boyfriend Patrick, the girl she used to be didn’t survive. Instead of heading off to college as planned, Wren retreats to her father’s studio in the far-north woods of Maine. Somewhere she can be alone.

Then she meets Cal Owen. Dealing with his own troubles, Cal’s hiding out too. When the chemistry between them threatens to pull Wren from her hard-won isolation, Wren has to choose: risk opening her broken heart to the world again, or join the ghosts who haunt her.


Lovely, Dark, and Deep by Amy McNamara will be released by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers on November 13, 2012.

This looks like a haunting, heartbreaking debut. I’m always excited to read books about slightly older protagonists, and I’m curious about how setting will play a role in this story. Plus, a little romance never hurts.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • Well, I love the title (it references a GREAT poem!), and the story sounds sad and just a little bit wonderful. Nice pick!
