Waiting on Wednesday: Try Not to Breathe
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Summary from Amazon:
A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough – or cared enough – to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again. Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.
Try Not to Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard will be released by Viking Juvenile on January 19, 2012.
I really enjoyed Hubbard’s The Secret Year, and I’m looking forward to another book with a male POV. As usual, I love the mental health component, and I’m intrigued by Ryan’s relationship with nature and with Nicki.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
