Waiting on Wednesday: Tell Me a Secret
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
For this week, I chose Holly Cupala’s Tell Me a Secret, which will be released by HarperTeen on June 22nd. Bildungsroman has been revealing all kinds of YA author secrets in honor of the book’s imminent pub day. I’m really looking forward to getting my pre-order!
It’s tough living in the shadow of a dead girl. . . .
In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda’s death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister’s world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own.
When two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears, Miranda is stripped of her former life. She must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister’s demons and her own.
In this powerful debut novel, stunning new talent Holly Cupala illuminates the dark struggle of a girl who must let go of her past to find a way into her own future.–From Amazon
