Waiting on Wednesday (17)

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


"A girl’s letters to her best friend reveal two lives derailed by anorexia in this haunting debut that’s Wintergirls meets The Sixth Sense." I'm not usually drawn to contemporary fiction, but anything that can be compared to a Laurie Halse Anderson book gets my attention. Plain and simple. This one is supposed to be a psychological thriller, so that also has me interested. Looks like June 2012 is going to be a good month for books! Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price hits the shelves in the summer of 2012. 


It’s not a hospital, a spa, or an institution. That’s what they told me—that’s what the brochures promised. But no matter what the brochures promised, Zoe finds that Twin Birch is a place for girls with a penchant for harming themselves. Through journal entries and letters to her best friend, Elise, she tries to understand why she was brought there, and how she could possibly belong in a place like this. But Zoe’s letters to Elise remain unanswered. She wonders why her best friend would cut her off without a word, reliving memory after memory of their beautiful, rocky, inescapable friendship. But everyone has secrets—including Zoe—and as her own fragile mental state hangs in the balance, she must finally learn to come to terms with what happened to Elise before she’s able to let go.
