Waiting on Wednesday (28)


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, which is brought to you by Jill at Breaking the Spine! This meme is where you can post about what book(s) you're really look forward to.

This week, I absolutely can't wait for... 

                                                Someone Else's Life

Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
Coming out on April 12th, 2012

When seventeen-year-old Rosie’s mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington’s Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty-per-cent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when she tells her mum’s best friend, ‘Aunt Sarah’ that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie was not her biological mother after all... Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, hitching along on her ex-boyfriend’s GAP year to follow her to Los Angeles. But all does not go to plan, and as Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply-buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonising decision of her own - one which will be the most heart-breaking and far-reaching of all...
This is really different from what I usually read, but it sounds really interesting!  I also really like the cover, even though it looks pretty somber.  I love the doodles too!

What are you waiting for today?

  8. I love the cover too! Very cute :D Sounds like a really emotional read though - which is exactly the kind of book I love. Those that really dig deep and leave me in a mess of tears... I'm a sucker for them! Sigh.
