Waiting On Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, is a weekly meme where we showcase the books that we can't wait to come out.

This week:

Life, After by Sarah Dareer Littman
Release Date: July 1st, 2010
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Everything changes for Dani and her family when a truck loaded with explosives detonates outside the AMIA building in Buenos Aires, Argentina, killing her beloved aunt and unborn cousin. Because of the ensuing political upheaval, economic hardship, and emotional toll, Dani's family moves to the U.S. It is a terrifying place--new school, new language, new hardships--and Dani's angry father is turning into a stranger, more so everyday. Just when Dani thinks she is about to lose it, she befriends Jessica, one of the girls who has been cruelly teasing her since she arrived.

It is the most unlikely of friendships. Jessica is wealthy, groomed, spoiled. But Jessica has a past that only Dani can understand. She lost her father in 9/11. It is a friendship that allows them both to heal in unexpected and surprising ways, and changes them and their families forever.

I think that this book sounds heartbreaking and amazing. A lot different from most of the other books that are being eagerly anticipated. I love the cover too, it's beautiful in an understated kind of way.


  1. I have this on my wish list, too. Hadn't realized that it was coming out so soon!

  2. Whoa, this sounds amazing! I'll have to add it to my TBR pile.

  3. I have this one on my shelf and I cannot wait to read it. I didn't read her first book but I heard it was good so after I read this one I may check it out. Great WOW pick!


Your comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, keep them coming!
