Waiting on Wednesday: The Space Between Us

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

Summary from Goodreads:

From the author of Virtuosity, a novel about two sisters and the secrets they tell, the secrets they keep, and the secret that tears them apart.

Amelia is used to being upstaged by her charismatic younger sister, Charly. She doesn’t mind, mostly, that it always falls to her to cover for Charly’s crazy, impulsive antics. But one night, Charly’s thoughtlessness goes way too far, and she lands them both in serious trouble.

Amelia’s not sure she can forgive Charly this time, and not sure she wants to…but the situation is even worse than either of them realizes. Amelia has no choice but to give up everything–her friends, her future, her dream–in order to cover for Charly’s huge mistake.

Amelia doesn’t understand how her sister could have done this to them both. What she doesn’t know is that Charly is hiding a terrible secret—one with the potential to change everything.


The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez will be released by Simon Pulse on October 16, 2012.

Wow is that cover pink. But once my eyes adjusted to the brightness, I remembered how much I loved Martinez’ Virtuosity. In this book about secrets, it’s hard to know what to expect, but I hope I can anticipate the same writing I loved in the author’s debut.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • Yeah. I’m hoping the UK cover won’t be as pink. I just don’t get it. I really liked Virtuosity, and I love sister books so I’m watching this one!
