Waiting On Wednesday: The Beginning Of After

This week's WoW is

The Beginning Of After

By Jennifer Castle

It will be published on September 6th 2011 by HarperTeen.

Summary from Goodreads

Sixteen-year-old Laurel's world changes instantly when her parents and brother are killed in a terrible car accident. Behind the wheel is the father of her bad-boy neighbor, David Kaufman, whose mother is also killed. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Laurel navigates a new reality in which she and her best friend grow apart, boys may or may not be approaching her out of pity, overpowering memories lurk everywhere, and Mr. Kaufman is comatose but still very much alive. Through it all, there is David, who swoops in and out of Laurel's life and to whom she finds herself attracted against her better judgment. She will forever be connected to him by their mutual loss, a connection that will change them both in unexpected ways.

Fans of emotionally true and heartfelt stories, such as Sarah Dessen's THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER and IF I STAY by Gayle Forman, will fall in love with Jennifer Castle’s incandescent debut novel...a heart wrenching, surprisingly witty testament to how drastically life can change in the span of a single moment. (Goodreads)

Why I’m Waiting: I usually try to stay away from the really heavy stories because I get emotional, but this one sounds like the perfect one to ease me into them. I am looking forward to seeing how Laurel and David navigate their feelings and get through the tragedy together.
