Waiting on Wednesday: The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

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:

The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

Expected Release Date: February 10, 2015

There’s death all around us.
We just don’t pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn’t look at her like she might break down at any moment.

Now she’s just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that’s all she’ll ever be.

As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there’s a secret she hasn’t told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.

Lex’s brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn’t have to be real to keep you from moving on.

This doesn’t exactly look like a really uplifting tale, but it does look interesting.  I like stories about siblings, and I like stories that are complicated and murky.  Hopefully, this one will deliver on all those things. Also, that cover is great–simple and interesting to the eye all at once.

What are you waiting on this week?
