"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.
Today, I am waiting on:
Drowning Is Inevitable by Shalanda Stanley!
Drowning Is Inevitable by Shalanda Stanley!
"A literary knockout with the loudest of beating hearts."
John Corey Whaley, Printz Award winner of Where Things Come Back
Olivia has spent her whole life struggling to escape her dead mother’s shadow. But when her father can’t even look at her because Olivia reminds him of her mother, and her grandmother mistakenly calls her “Lillian,” shaking a reputation she didn’t ask for is next to impossible. Olivia is used to leaning on her best friend, Jamie; her handsome but hot-tempered boyfriend, Max; and their wild-child friend, Maggie, for the reality check that her small Louisiana town can’t provide. But when a terrible fight between Jamie and his father turns deadly, all Olivia can think to do is grab her friends and run.
In a flash, Olivia, Jamie, Max, and Maggie become fugitives on the back roads of Louisiana. They’re headed to New Orleans, where they hope to find a solution to an unfixable problem. But with their faces displayed on all the news stations, their journey becomes a harrowing game of hide-and-seek from the police—and so-called allies, who just might be the real enemy.
Shalanda Stanley’s breathtaking debut novel explores the deep ties between legacy, loyalty, and love, even as it asks the question: How far would you go to save a friend?
I typically don't go for heart-wrenching, super emotional books but something about the potential thriller aspect of this one coupled with the New Orleans road-trip and I am sold! Drowning is Inevitable is scheduled for release on September 8, 2015 and you can pre-order here!!
What books are you waiting on this Wednesday?? Also, pretty, pretty please check out my Rec' Me Something Good post from yesterday and recommend something to me!

Sarika @ The Readdicts
I love how this book is set in Louisiana (where I live)! I know I'm not the only one who loves it when a book is set in their home state! :)ReplyDelete
I also don't typically go for heart-wrenching books, but I do love a good thriller. I am curious about this one, but I'll probably check out a few reviews first. I hope you love it. Great pick!ReplyDelete
Alright, what is it about Olivia's mom that's causing all these hullabaloo? What's the deadly argument about? And why will these four friends going to run?ReplyDelete
I guess I'm putting this one on the TBR list, too.
Thanks for stopping by!
This book seems like it's going to be action packed/emotional roller coaster throughout! I'm totally hooked! Adding to me TBR! Thanks for sharing! ♥ReplyDelete
