Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver (Farrar, Straus and Giroux [BYR]):
A girl takes over her twin sister’s identity in this emotionally charged page-turner about the complicated bond between sisters. Ella and Maddy Lawton are identical twins. Ella has spent her high school years living in popular Maddy’s shadows, but she has never been envious of Maddy. In fact, she’s chosen the quiet, safe confines of her sketchbook over the constant battle for attention that has defined Maddy’s world. When—after a heated argument—Maddy and Ella get into a tragic accident that leaves her sister dead, Ella wakes up in the hospital surrounded by loved ones who believe she is Maddy. Feeling responsible for Maddy’s death and everyone’s grief, Ella makes a split-second decision to pretend to be Maddy. Soon, Ella realizes that Maddy’s life was full of secrets. Caught in a web of lies, Ella is faced with two options—confess her deception or live her sister’s life. [ADD TO GOODREADS]
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
This one just sounds interesting to me. I want to know Ella’s motivations – it has to be more than guilt, right? – and I also want to know about the secrets her twin was carrying around with her. This has the potential to be really good, or really really not. I’m definitely hoping it’s the former!
Release Date: April 28, 2015
