Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book released we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay
Release Date: 17th March 2015
“One girl. Two stories. Meet Fiona Doyle. The thick ridges of scar tissue on her face are from an accident twelve years ago. Fiona has notebooks full of songs she’s written about her frustrations, her dreams, and about her massive crush on beautiful uber-jock Trent McKinnon. If she can’t even find the courage to look Trent straight in his beautiful blue eyes, she sure isn’t brave enough to play or sing any of her songs in public. But something’s changing in Fiona. She can’t be defined by her scars anymore.
And what if there hadn’t been an accident? Meet Fi Doyle. Fi is the top-rated female high school lacrosse player in the state, heading straight to Northwestern on a full ride. She’s got more important things to deal with than her best friend Trent McKinnon, who’s been different ever since the kiss. When her luck goes south, even lacrosse can’t define her anymore. When you’ve always been the best at something, one dumb move can screw everything up. Can Fi fight back?
Hasn’t everyone wondered what if? In this daring debut novel, Moriah McStay gives us the rare opportunity to see what might have happened if things were different. Maybe luck determines our paths. But maybe it’s who we are that determines our luck.”
I really haven’t read enough of the types of books that deal with issues the main character may have. In this case it is likely that Fiona may get treated differently due to the way in which she looks and i think it could be a really interesting and eye opening perspective into someone else’s reality. I’m really looking forward for the release!
What are your picks for this week?
