Waiting on Wednesday

fffff.001

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

30063029This week I’m waiting on The Sky Between You and Me by Catherine Alene. I came across it while looking through the Sourcebooks Fire catalog. What first attracted me was the cover: the white ripped pages with a streak of colourful sky. Beautiful! The story sounds pretty intense and emotional. What really interests me is the fact that it’s told in verse. I don’t read a lot of poetry, but if done right it could make the message hit home even more. The story is set to be released in February 2017.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? 

Lighter. Leaner. Faster.

Raesha will do whatever it takes to win Nationals. For her, competing isn’t just about the speed of her horse or the thrill of the win. It’s about honoring her mother’s memory and holding on to a dream they once shared.

Lighter. Leaner. Faster.

For an athlete. Every second counts. Raesha knows minus five on the scale will let her sit deeper in the saddle, make her horse lighter on her feet. And lighter, leaner, faster gives her the edge she needs over the new girl on the team, a girl who keeps flirting with Raesha’s boyfriend and making plans with her best friend.

So Raesha focuses on minus five. But if she isn’t careful, she will lose more than just the people she loves. She will lose herself to Lighter. Leaner. Faster.

  1. Great pick for this week! I agree with you that the cover is absolutely stunning, it’s so simple but it really caught my eye and I just love it.
    Also the blurb sounds really interesting too. I’ve never read a book in verse but I’d be willing to give this one a try, you never know it could become my new favourite way to tell stories! 😀
