Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event brought to you by Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming books we can’t wait to read.
On my wish list this week is a YA contemporary book due out In Winter 2014:
Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt
Publication Date: February 18, 2014 from Walker Childrens
Publisher’s Title Summary:
One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself.
Jonah and Brighton are about to have the most awkwardly awful night of their lives. For Jonah, every aspect of his new life reminds him of what he has had to give up. All he wants is to be left alone. Brighton is popular, pretty, and always there to help anyone . . . but has no idea of what she wants for herself. Her seemingly perfect life is marred only by Jonah, the one person who won’t give her the time of day, but also makes her feel, well, something. So when they are repeatedly thrown together over the course of one night, anything can—and does—happen. Told in alternating chapters, this poignant, beautiful novel’s energy and tension, amidst the humor and romance, builds to a new beginning of self-acceptance and hope.
So, this book has his-and-her perspectives, and takes place over one night. Just my kind of book! I want to know more about Brighton and Jonah and how their 12-hours together change their lives.
The cover art and title ties in great with the synopsis, and I can’t wait to check it out.
