"Waiting On" Wednesday! 27

Hold Still by Nina LaCour

From The Publisher's Catalog:

An arresting story about starting over after a friend's suicide, from a breakthrough new voice in YA fiction.

dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can't.

Devastating, hopefully, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend's suicide. With the help of her family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn't die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid's descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid-and Caitlin herself.

Released October 15th 2009

Hands down, I need to read this. I feel like I might get a lot out of it. And with my attempts at reading what I like to call, "Sad books" I think this could turn out to be amazing. And what's this about a journal with illustrations, I'm definitely eager to see this.

What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

  2. Oh, yes. I want that cover, too. And it sounds like a space that I was in for a long time while I wrote the short story, "The Longest Distance." It's an important theme and sounds like a wonderful book.

    You know, I won a poetry contest with the theme "suicide prevention" in jr high. My poem was titled "An Empty Chair at the Table".
