Waiting on Wednesday (9)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".


Lost For Words by Alice Kuipers
Release date: May 1st 2010
Summary : (taken from Amazon)

My New Year's resolution: I'm moving on from everything that's happened. I'm not going to talk about it, think about it, let the memory pounce upon me like a waiting tiger, nothing.

All Sophie wants to do is forget. But it's not easy now that everything's changed. The house feels too big, school drags on for too long, lights are too bright, the room spins, and her hands get sweaty for no reason. And she can't remember why she was ever best friends with Abigail, who is obsessed with parties and boys. Only the new girl, Rosa-Leigh, with her prose poems and utter confidence, might understand. But talking to her seems impossible. 

Lost in memories of the life she once had, Sophie retreats into herself. But there's only so long she can keep everything bottled up inside before she explodes. Maybe by confronting the tragedy of her past she'll figure out how to fix her future.

I looked up more about the book and discovered it was mostly about Sophie dealing with her sister's death from a London bombing. I read a wonderful review about this book already and that alone almost drove me to tears.  It really affected the reader and made her appreciate her siblings more. AND it's written in journal entries, which I love! So yeah I think this is going to be awesome :)
