Waiting on Wednesday (11):

January 18, 2012

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It gives bloggers a chance to showcase books they’re waiting for and it’s a great way to find new books! So, head on over to Breaking the Spine to sign up or to check out other people’s posts!

This week’s selection is What I Didn’t Say by Keary Taylor, author of the Fall of Angels series and Eden, which was recently optioned for film. Keary is such an amazing writer and I can’t wait to read this!
Getting drunk Homecoming night your senior year is never a good idea, but Jake Hayes never expected it all to end with a car crash and a t-post embedded in his throat.

His biggest regret about it all? What he never said to Samantha Shay. He’s been in love with her for years and never had the guts to tell her. Now it’s too late. Because after that night, Jake will never be able to talk again.

When Jake returns to his small island home, population 5,000, he’ll have to learn how to deal with being mute. He also finds that his family isn’t limited to his six brothers and sisters, that sometimes an entire island is watching out for you. And when he gets the chance to spend more time with Samantha, she’ll help him learn that not being able to talk isn’t the worst thing that could ever happen to you. Maybe, if she’ll let him, Jake will finally tell her what he didn’t say before, even if he can’t actually say it.

    I know this book! It does sound great and I like the cover – the proximity of the faces, the ‘expression’ of the eyes and the simplicity of it. Great pick!
