Waiting on Wednesday: I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Expected Release Date: January 27, 2015

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

I might not have been quite the flailing fangirl over Forman’s other titles, but I still enjoyed them.  This one looks like it’s going to garner quite a bit of attention, too.  It isn’t going to be an easy read–the book’s summary alone lets the reader know this is going to be a Hard Read–but it looks like it’s also going to be emotional, cathartic, and thoughtful.   It looks like there might be a bit more to the story than originally hinted at, which could go either way for me.  However, I know I’ll be picking this one up at some point in the near future.

What are you waiting on this week?
