Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at  http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com/  that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I've just ordered off Amazon.co.uk another book by Simone Elkeles - it's not exactly a new release but I can't wait to receive it anyway....

Nothing has been the same since Caleb Becker left a party drunk, got behind the wheel, and hit Maggie Armstrong. Even after months of painful physical therapy, Maggie walks with a limp. Her social life is nil and a scholarship to study abroad—her chance to escape everyone and their pitying stares — has been canceled.
After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb’s free . . . if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers.
Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak." Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It’s a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other
