Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor
Expected publication: August 15th 2017 by Dial Books
We sat at the edge of the ocean—my sister Henri and I—inches apart but not touching at all. We’d been so sure someone would find us by now.
Emma had always orbited Henri, her fierce, magnetic queen bee of an older sister, and the two had always been best friends. Until something happened that wrecked them.
I’d trusted Henri more than I’d trusted myself. Wherever she told me to go, I’d follow.
Then the unthinkable occurs—a watery nightmare off the dazzling coast. The girls wash up on shore, stranded. Their only companion is Alex, a troubled boy agonizing over his own secrets. Trapped in this gorgeous hell, Emma and Alex fall together as Emma and Henri fall catastrophically apart.
For the first time, I was afraid we’d die on this shore.
To find their way home, the sisters must find their way back to each other. But there’s no map for this—or anything. Can they survive the unearthing of the past and the upheaval of the present? (goodreads summary)
Why I am Waiting
I am currently watching Lost for the first time on Netflix with Husband. That being said I am loving the shipwrecked/crazy island/lost themed books that are coming out. I just read The Sandcastle Empire last month and am really looking forward to this one. This book looks like it will have a sister dynamic to it. I always find sister books fascinating (I grew up with a younger brother) their relationships are something I will never experience, hopefully just like being lost on an island! It sounds like a great read to end the summer with and I’m looking forward to it!
